Hi Val,

I can answer your first question. (Matjaz or Steve write also, if you 
know more ;) )
Czech and Slovenian sign languages are very different, but I haven't had 
time to see much in Slovenian SL (I just meet some Slovenians who knows 
basics of Czech SL)

it is quite interesting to study relationships of europian SLs :)
