Yes...we are writing the majority of the other numbers ...from around  
26 on... without rotation symbols anyway...most of them are two  
handshapes without rotation symbols, even though some of them do have  
tiny I just noticed when doing page numbers, that  
16-19 were the exceptions...I noticed this because I am working on  
publications and these issues come up...

Page numbers in SignWriting fascinate me. They are a wonderful way to  
teach reading, because you have to read the symbols to be able to  
find the page, and so they almost become like a puzzle! As you said,  
your brain starts working and you focus on the symbols to find the  
page you want...and the reward at the end is that you found the page!
