Hi Cherie and Adam -
Thank you for your help with the ASL sign for DOWNLOAD. I used it for  
an Icon in SignBank, for importing (or downloading) signs from  
SignPuddle into SignBank (see diagram below)...but I used two dots  
with the idea that it was done twice...but now I see Adam, that you  
felt it was once? Should I change this icon? There is very little  
room in these tiny icons, so I wrote the finishing position showing  
the bend at the end of the sign since there was no room for the  
beginning position...Val ;-)
