Hello Everyone, and Stefan!
Yes. You are right. I am clarifying why there are two possible ways to 
write the position of the hand facing the chest...The third positions 
mean EXACTLY the same thing. The palm is facing the chest. Number 1 is 
seen from the Front View and Number 5 from the Top View, but they are 
writing the SAME position...So writers have a choice in SignSpellings, 
based on different viewpoints...continued next message...
