Val's comment....

Hi Jerry, and Stefan and everyone -
Regarding the email feature in has great potential and soon
will be officially available on And at that time, when we
all try to use it from, we can establish some guidelines
for users. I suspect that people will have different experiences,
depending on their computers, their internet connections, and their
knowledge of using right now, don't worry about it too
much and let us get this transfer done...and then when it is stable, we
will start sending email in SignWriting - that will be wonderful!

By the way, although the GIF format is well-known and I have used it
for years, the PNG format is becoming more and more accepted in the
world. So I hope that all of you can find a way to make PNGs...Does
anyone have suggestions in the PC world? What graphics programs create
PNGs?  Val ;-)
