I LOVE this message (your original longer message), because it
explains so beautifully why the 10 handshape (the one with the thumb
straight up), was designed the way it was designed. At the time, I
gave the finger more importance than the Fill. It is an old handshape
and later, you are right, other handshapes were designed to put the
Fill (palm facing) first...so you aptly described the reason for the
inconsistency with that symbol...
And your conclusion is correct...in your examples, 3a is the correct
one...And thanks for the pictures of Prague - A very beautiful
city!!! Val ;-)
