Hello Cherie!
This is wonderful. THANK YOU. The old article needed improvement...  
And I really like what you have said....This is so much better than  

I there a way to actually show the handshapes in  
SignWriting while you are discussing them?..For example, when you  
mention the square for a fist, it could link to:

The term "pentagon shape" ....I have no clue what a pentagon looks  
like....So the more visual you make it the better...or link to  
diagrams on the web...

But what you have done is really good...Can you place a paragraph  
about SignPuddle Software and link to it?

We actually need a separate Wikipedia article about SignPuddle  
Software too...people need to know where to go to search for signs  
already written, and how to create signs themselves on the web...

And I think your link to your SignWriting document is perfect!

Maybe a Wikipedia article about SignWriting Literature, linking to  
all the documents written in SignWriting would be a good idea too...

Thank you once again, Cherie!

Val ;-)
