Hello Thierry and Everyone...
Welcome to the SignWriting List, Thierry. Happy to meet you...

Ha! I am sorry about the name Walloon Sign Language (grin). I will  
change the name in SignPuddle to French Belgian Sign Language.  I am  
assuming that is what you would like?

Feel free to write messages in any spoken or signed language. We can  
send email in SignWriting now too, through the SignMail feature in  

Val ;-)
