Hi Folks!

I'm trying to write the sign for "Caesarian birth", but I need to know how
to position the signs (for 'incision' and 'born') in such a way as to show
that these are on the stomach rather than the more usual positioning for

It's not that I can't think of a few ways of doing this, it's just that they
seem a bit clumsy. I'd be grateful if anyone could suggest the most usual
way of doing this sort of thing.

By the way, I went to the SignWriting site to add some more signs to the
British dictionary, but it seems to be pointing at the American dictionary.
Can this be fixed? Also, can we still add signs? I don't see any way of
doing it now.
