Hi Stefan!
Thanks for your good comments, and thanks to Charles too ;-)

And I thought of the two-handed sign issue too, for the ten handshape  
that has the white palm (the sign top right)...that could be either  
left or right hand...so you are right that could be mis-read without  
the movement arrow...good point...

I am glad to see you like the first one, Stefan and Charles...that  
would make it easier since we are used to that writing...I actually  
like the bottom right one too...I don't think that can be confused  
with two handed signs...

So...Since I am doing the layout for the publications of the Bible  
John 1-7, Cat in the Hat, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella this autumn,  
I think I will leave it to the writers of each document to check my  
page numbers to see if they like the way I wrote them, and if they  
request changes then I will make them, so that each publication has  
the author's style of writing, not only for the document itself, but  
for the page numbers as well...

Here are some ASL numbers written with two handshapes...we have  
written them this way for a long time...I don't think they look like  
two handed signs in these cases...I hope not...
