That's neat Stephen!
I played with it a bit - just selecting a few symbols at random and
moving them around.  It worked!  Great job!  I was wondering if you
could make moving easier by returning to the previous setup, like what
happens when you push the back button in a browser and inserting again,
but this time with the picture of the first location shown for
reference.  Then, when the new location is selected, the first location
is "erased" and the new location placed.

I went to the translater afterwards and noticed that if I typed the word
"I" as in "I am who I am", the translator doesn't give me the word "I",
it gives me the letter "i".  I tried adding a sign to the dictionary
which is the same as "me".  It showed up as "I.gif" in the dictionary.
I also was unsure what the ASL Definition was asking for and just typed
the word "I".  Clicking on "I.gif" in the  dictionary didn't show the
file I had uploaded.
