Hello Jonathan:

This is where I have the symbols on the web:

SymbolBank (Number 4 on this page)

IMWA Downloads (including Machado's SVG)

I will be working on the ISWA (International SignWriting Alphabet)  
from May 15-July is a time period where I have fewer  
distractions and I hope to get a clean symbolset for SVG work...

The ISWA will have new handshapes for Ethiopian Sign Language, and  
some of the DanceWriting symbols will be gone...and no skateboards  
and axes ;-))

Then someday, there will be a complete IMWA, but probably when I am  
80 years old and DanceWriting will be my focus...

What matters right now is to get a really good ISWA that really works  
for all signed languages...

Thanks for your question...

Val ;-)
