Testing SignPuddle 2.0

Hi Val,

I've been playing around with an ASL 2.0 puddle.  I improved the import 
utility so it is much nicer to use.  I've imported 2 out of 38 pages of 
signs for ASL.  About an hour a page, or a sign a minute.  This could 
take a while.  If anyone wants to help, let me know.

Currently, I have 90 signs in the ASL 2.0 puddle with sequences.  It's 
working well.  I have a couple of questions about the SignSpelling 
Sequence which I'll send later.  I need to make detailed sequences 
easier to add, but the real issues won't become obvious until we hit 
around 500 signs. Right?

I'm going to work on the Dictionary Lookup screen now so that we don't 
have to use the Search by Words screen to see the signs sorted according 
to the SSS.
