Hello Everyone -
Thank you for this excellent discussion. I just found out that Steve
Slevinski is planning to include, in the new SignPuddle 2.0, a way to
automatically colorize different parts of a sentence, and also a
default color for any sign that is a proper name...So for those who
have computers, color is an option...

And offcially, the underline is the official symbol for a proper name
when writing horizontally -

Many thanks!! And have a great day....

Val ;-)
