Symbol consistancy?

Now I understand what Adam is talking about.  The third and sixth column are inconsistent on this handshape as the index finger should be on the left of the lower c handshape to be consistent with the index finger for the "1" handshape and the "D" handshape.

  This screen shot from SignText first shows the set of symbols that I was refering to, and the second is the base symbol that I was compareing. Notice that the third and sixth columns are ordered differently.

Hello Adam!
Thanks for this message. Attached is a screen capture of the symbols
you mention and they correct and consistent. Is it possible that your
browser's cache is overloaded and needs to be cleared? yesterday I
received a phone call from someone who said that the symbols looked
weird in Firefox and when she cleared the cache and cleared the
history in Firefox, presto, everything looked good again! So to test 
this, try accessing the same symbols in another browser to see if
they look the same in the other browser...

Looking at the attached diagram, each index-finger handshape has a
different shape for the base of the for D hand, 
open-C, oval, angle and so forth, make the handshapes different from
each other...

Does this help?  Val ;-)
