Stefan and Everyone -
The old SignPuddle is still saved and is not gone...We can compare the  
old with the new to be sure everything is no worries...

Steve will explain this better to all of you....

I would suggest, Stefan, that you take a screen capture of one  
example, and explain the specific symbols that should be  
different...that will help us a lot...and tell us whether the example  
is in the German Literature Puddle or the Dictionary...

Steve and I cannot find a difference between the old German files and  
the new German files...we have been looking...

Val ;-)
