Hi Tomas,

Currently, only 1024 characters have been assigned to SignWriting.

The 16 bit number is from my investigation of Unicode and a short
article I wrote Sept 2, 2004 called "The IMWA's place in Unicode." I
wrote the article on the Oculog.net forum that I later dropped.  I have
resurected the forum and it is back online if you want to take a look.
