Hi Val, 

I can understand your idea - 
and in addition to that ( instead of a critical but ..) 
my brain would start to work on that - instead just reading what is meant
... same thing happens with coloured SW-documents ... 

Stefan ;-)

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 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...
