hopefully this color-option will be just an option and not a automatic
I personally enjoy reading simple black on white documents. There has been
a time that newcomers with Powerpoint-presentations showed up with fireworks
and mystic transitions in order to impress the audience. I do not agree with
these people. I would like to concentrate on the message and just as
Antony from Australia is pointing out You are able to understand most of
the message from the context.
If you prefer to open options for people to set a focus on punctuation or
rotation-movement from the wrist or whatever and allow them to attract the
attention to these symbols just by giving them a different color why not
? But for the purpose of writing your signed message in any given SL I do
not think that this is needed.

Well, I think there may be several ways to mark proper names.
1. Lines according to Stefan W.
2. Coloring -- but only for educational purposes. Colors are used in writing
spoken languages for grammar purposes too. But it may be inconvenient in
everyday use, for example when writing a note with a pencil to somebody.
3. Fingerspelling - but I think it should be also "highlighted" in a way for
proper names. Maybe, with two "/" marks, used like quotation marks?
4. Spoken language alphabet transcription put in square brackets just after
the SW proper name sign, like [Lucyna]. (Translations in brackets are also
commonly used in spoken language writing).
5. Vertical line.
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....
