That's interesting, Cherie. Thanks for telling me. You and Charles  
seem to like them...

They follow the exact angle of the forearm. For me, at least, they  
seem visually more connected to the way the signer produced the sign.  
Of course that is a detailed issue for people using the ISWA for  
detailed writing, but it would be nice to have them available at  
least, for researchers or those who use Movement Writing for some was just a thought...

And it would not change anyone's teaching methods...People writing  
for everyday use can completely ignore them...

Anyway, thanks for your feedback!  Val ;-)
