  Thank you Stephen, I tried to create and save a sign.  I could create it,
and it got all the way to writing the name, definition, and source, but when
I tried to save after that, it said, "not valid" or something similar.
There seems to be a glitch at that point.  It then said that there were
still no signs in the dictionary so I don't know what happened.

  Charles - THANK YOU!

    Hi Charles,

    If you want an SCA SignPuddle, I've created one for you on Oculog.net:
http://www.oculog.net/signpuddle/SCA.  If anyone else wants a SignPuddle to
play around in, let me know.

    I have also created a SignPuddle for testing:

      Looking at your Flemish & Walloon sections brings up an interesting
use of Sign Language, that of the Society for Creative Anachronism.  The SCA
is a medievalist recreationist group that uses ASL and some signs from other
languages in a medieval court setting.  One of the areas that is most useful
to us is in "name signs" for specific groups.  These are based, whenever
possible, on the heraldry of the group, so, for example, An Tir is a lion
rampant, which would be ASL [Lion + claw forward], Trimaris is [3 + water +
waves].  Would it be possible to get an SCA SignPuddle section set up so
that we can load this set of "special interest signs" into it?

        Hello List, and Kathleen and Flemish children!

        Ha! yes. I did as you suggested, Kathleen, and divided Belgium into
        two Sign Language regions, Flemish and Walloon. Please see attached
        diagram for the icons for the two areas...I hope this is what you
        wanted? The Walloon dictionary does not go anywhere right now if you
        click on the icon, but in time it will...And I used the sign for
        Belgium for the Walloon dictionary until I find out what their sign
        for their regional area of Belgium...

        Plus...Kathleen...did I choose the correct s! ! ign for Flanders?
        how following the SignSpelling rules, the arrow is underneath the
        handshape. I can explain that rule again, if you need it for your
