I want to let you know that I have read over
sw0145-SignSpelling-2004.pdf and that I am still interested in reading
"SignSpelling Guidelines 2007" once it is ready. I know you have been
very busy with many other good projects that will benefit the
SignWriting community world wide and you continued support is very
appreciated. Do you have an idea when you expect "SignSpelling
Guidelines 2007" to be ready?
P.S. I don't mind reading manuals at all as I enjoy learning even from
books. What I sometimes find frustrating is reading manuals and not
coming across the information I need. That is why I want to let you
know that the links you regularly post on the list regarding various
subjects have been very helpful. Especially the recent ones regarding
rotations and wrist rotations which have help clear up various aspects
that I totally ignored before. Once again many thanks.
