SignWriting List
March 9, 2006

Hi Steve, Stuart and everyone -

Wow. That's cool! Thank you, Steve. I would vote for that myself.  
Then, when people are trying to find signs to move into SignText,  
they would not get the question mark...they either find the sign or  
they don't...but then we could always access the old pics when we are  
doing editing...yes...I vote to try it hard to do?  Val ;-)
