No, the Stokoe handshapes I am referring to are pictures of the basic handshapes in ASL as described by Stokoe when he set out the linguistic principles of ASL; not any symbols from his system, they are pictures of hands-- a fist, a B hand, an e hand, a open 8, a claw, a bent v... all the basic shapes. Like the Gallaudet font has pictures of the hands making the alphabet handshapes... I must not have gotten the picture from your website, since you don't recognize what I'm talking about. ::smile:: I'll send it from work Monday, so you can see what I mean, maybe I am just not describing it well.
Thanks for permission to use other images. I didn't want to just assume it was okay.

My goodness...of course you have my full permission to use any
diagrams of SignWriting and Sutton Movement Writing...but please do
not use diagrams from the Stokoe system or other systems...let's just
teach the SignWriting symbols as you are doing...SignWriting is our
system and that is free for anyone to post and use anywhere...
Obviously I give you FULL and FREE permission to post any SignWriting
or Movement Writing symbols and diagrams related to, or included in
Sutton Movement Writing and SignWriting...
and I never post anything on our SignWriting-related web sites that I
do not want people to use...everything is there for people to use
freely and without restriction...
I realize that Wikipedia has licenses and I agree that I too should
learn about them, but don't let that make you feel that I am
restricting anyone! Just the opposite...I feel that NO restrictions
You have my FULL permission to post these and place them under a FREE
license of any kind you see fit... (see attached)...or just link to
All the symbols are there on the web in lessons...
Grab them all from those web pages and post them with my full
