Wonderful stuff! I love it ;-))

This shows that maybe I shouldn't take the feet away from the  
International SignWriting Alphabet (ISWA) because I was thinking of  
taking them away since normally feet are not used in SignWriting! Ha!  
Maybe they will be needed after all ;-)

I will look at this after I finish the Rotation Symbol lesson I am  

But if Stefan or the other editors have time, it would be great to  
see how they would write the issues you mention in Cat in the Hat 9...

Val ;-)
