SignWriting List
March 19, 2004

Dear SignWriting List, and Stephen -
This is wonderful - enormously impressive! Believe me, I am really 
amazed and happy and I look forward to testing this later tonight...;-)

Some things to tell you....First, there have been some changes to the 
actual sequence itself, and I have been busily trying to help you get 
that new file, but I am not done yet, so I hope your amazing web 
database is flexible enough to be able to make some changes 
later?....Second, the BaseSymbols need to appear slightly 
differently...I will explain later. Third, our programmer will be 
working on our server today, so the SymbolBank web site, the SignBank 
web site, and our shopping cart will be off line today...I hope this 
won't be an inconvenience for anyone...

We will have two Web databases available on the SymbolBank web site 
soon...One for the most detailed set of symbols....the SSS-2004....and 
one for the most simplified set of symbols....the there 
will be two searchable databases available later...

So thanks once again for everything!

Val ;-)
