Hello Stefan, Honza, Tomas, Martan and everyone!

We always write the position of contact. That is an old Writing Rule.  
It was established back in the mid 1980's, after we had a staff of  
Deaf adults write and write and write. They became skilled readers.  
We found that signs are read better, when the position of contact is  
always written...Take a look at this web page...You will see the  
Letter N in Czech Fingerspelling on that web page along with other  
examples...It needs to be fixed, Stefan. The fingers of the right  
hand need to be closer to the palm of the left hand...that is the  
second sign I
