Hi Cherie!
I can see you assume that Steve and I can read fluent ASL sentences!  
That is cool! But I am not sure I know the signs that are equivalent  
to the glosses you mention below...I have not been able to keep up  
with all the messages...so I will go back in the Archive to see what  
you originally sent and I will answer you...You are way ahead of me,  
because I have been so busy fulfilling orders and answering  
researchers questions...

The way to really tell us if we missed something or not is to take a  
screen capture of the way the sentence looks when it is correct on  
your computer and then send us the screen capture as a graphic to see  
if we saw the same thing you did...

The new problem now is that the sentences are so long that we cannot  
take one screen capture of the whole sentence! So this is all a new  
experience for us...and very exciting one at that! Thank you for  
giving Steve this feedback which is so important...

Since every web browser is different, I guess we will someday need a  
document viewer in Python or something like that...so we all see the  
same thing...I know Steve has talked about doing that in the future...

I suspect you need to use your Refresh Button, Cherie, when you re- 
load in a sentence...it may be that your web browser is holding other  
pictures and is not seeing the same sentence you just loaded...try  
pressing the Refresh Button several times in a row...when you re-load  

Val ;-)
