Hello Chris and Cristina!
Thanks to you both for these messages. It is great to know that Joe  
Martin's papers are being downloaded and read!

And I will be happy to post and link to your paper, Cristina, on the  
same web page:

SignWriting Linguistics Forum

I will work on that web posting and I will write again when it is  

Thank you for informing us...

Val ;-)
