Hi Gerard,

There are several variations of SWML. 
*1. SWML-UCPel*: the original SWML Formats
*2. SWML-D*: for WoordenBoek Online Dictionaries
*3. SWML-S*: for SignPuddle Online Dictionaries
*4. SWDB*: for UCPel Linguistic SignWriting Database

I believe Variations 1,2, and 4 use the old symbol sets.  (either sss-95 
or sss-99).

I  created SWML-S for the latest symbol set, SSS-2004 (or the IMWA).  
The -S stands for simple.  I initially looked at the SWML-UCPel, but 
decided it was not an appropriate fit because it appeared too 
complicated and it didn't use the latest symbol set. 

SWML-S was created from scratch and only has basic information: signs in 
lanes.  The latest version is 1.2 I believe.  It should probably be 
cleaned up, but it's been working fine for SignPuddle and SignText so 
I've left it alone.  I'm working on a new SignText that will continue to 
use SWML-S.

I'm also working on a SignText markup language that will include 
SignWriting, Unicode, and graphics.  It will be used for screen display 
and PDF generation.
