Hello Tomas!
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) you aptly described the reason for the  
inconsistency with that symbol...

And your conclusion is your examples, 3a is the correct  
one...And thanks for the pictures of Prague - A very beautiful  
city!!! Val ;-)
