For the Philippines and the Netherlands...

I have now changed the names of your sign languages on the directory  
page of SignPuddle...other changes need to be made on other  
SignPuddle pages, but right now, this web page has been changed... 
(see attached diagram)

SignPuddle Directory

When I lived in Denmark, I had been told that I should never use the  
words Holland or Dutch...that the people of the Netherlands preferred  
the words ... the Netherlands ... so I dropped the words Holland and  
Dutch from my English it seems strange to call it  
Dutch Sign Language, but Suzanne of course knows best...I am only a  
foreigner when it comes to these names, and trends change too...I was  
told that, back in the 1970's!....So I am out-of-date... ;-)
