SignWriting List
September 23, 2004

Hello Charles and Everyone -
Could you show me a screen capture of that symbol? I will be happy to 
add it to the IMWA. And I hope in time that the Brazilian Sign 
WebMessage program will use the IMWA as its symbolset, so we are 
standardized around the world!

Val ;-)
