I have never written a sign in Stokoe notation in my life! Nor would  
I want to, since I am not a trained expert and wouldn't dare for the  
long article we have on the web...I asked different experts to do the  
writing for those diagrams...people who were skilled in each writing  

Those diagrams were taken from this web page:

If you read that web page, and scroll down to the bottom, you will  
see the credits as to who wrote what...

The Stokoe notation was written by Joe Martin...Hi Joe!

The HamNoSys was written by an expert in HamNoSys notation, from  
Hamburg Germany...

And I wrote the SignWriting...if you go to that web page you can see  
our Shorthand system that web article, which goes for pages  
and pages, has three authors and a lot more detail that the diagram I  
showed you...

Here are the credits for the writing:
