Hello Andre!
Glad to see your computer is working for you! Did you get Firefox to  
work for you?

The sign for Frère is well written...there is just one thing...To  
write the Position of Contact, you need to show the hands closer  
together. I added the way I would write it in your SignPuddle, so  
when you search for Frère, scroll down to see my version...

Here is a screen capture of our two writings.... Following the  
"Position of Contact" spelling rule, the handshapes should be written  
closer to each other, to help the reader see how it looks in real  
life...the Contact Star can be placed close to the hands, or at the  
end of the arrowhead, either way, but the hands need to be placed  
closer to each other...

See attached screen capture...mine is the second one...
