I am wondering though if there would be a way to distinguish the floor 
handshapes without the finger gap (at least where it is individual 
fingers. In printing, I don't have a problem with the gap because the 
computer takes care of writing the symbol. But, I think that it is 
easier to miswrite the finger gap when handwriting. Just thinking about 
when we are doing quick writing or notes in a class. it seems to me 
that we would want to have the symbol be distinguishable enough that we 
don't have to worry about the finger accidentally looking connected or 
something. Just a thought.
