Hello Steve and Adam!
All this sounds great. Just be sure make two different versions of  
SignText...one as it is right now, and the new interactive one you  
mention above, so that people who do not want the illustrations or  
photos can just work without them...smile...but it is a great idea. I  
would assume that the SignText we have right now will still  
exist?...smile...I love it!

I was thinking of adding the photos or illustrations to SignBank too.  
I could give you all the illustrations I already have in SignBank,  
Steve, for you to test your interactive idea. They are small GIFs or  
small JPGs...For example, look at the attached screen capture of  
SignBank...on this screen, when people click on a symbol, then see an  
illustration of the symbol...would you like all the illustrations I  
have like this, in a bundled folder? I can send them to you...
