Dear Valerie

Thanks for your quick answer....
I was asking that because the deaf woman who manage the sign language
sector of the deaf association of the french speaking part of
Switzerland, who participated in the Sw workshop.... was trying to set
up her own dictionnary... using signmaker.... and wanted to know how to
paste the signs created into Signpuddle into this specific document....
there was nothing to do with signbank!!! I told her I was going to ask
the question....

anyway.... it would be interesting to know how to do what you
propose... and work into Signbank.... but I know you've got tons of
things to do before the end of the year....! so I keep this possibility
in mind... and will let you knowbeginning of 2005....

We've got to organise things here in the french speaking part of
Switzerland... there are about 4 different projects of dictionnaries,
new association.... the swiss federation of the deaf (franch speaking
part) will try to put things together... so that people work together
instead of... doing things separately...

I'll let you know

Thanks again
