Dear Val

I'm still on Mac Os 9 yet... plan to but y new laptop (Mac OsX).... hope to
get it soon!!! need it to download the offline signtext!
for the drag and drop... I'll keep using IE for this specific task and
Firefox for the rest!

I finished translating the SignText lessons in french today... but still
have to show it to some friend who can help with computer terminology I'm
not quite sure about.... you shoud get it soon

or maybe Juliette or Thierry would like to give a look at it and see if they
understand everything.... (if any of you want to help.... it's more than
welcome...) just let me know!
