Hi Maria, Gerard, Cherie and everyone -

What matters to me is that written signs are there on the page,  
visual, and strong and beautiful...and so much easier to read than the  
spoken languages on the page...for me anyway...

If they want to be critical of writing systems, it is really only  
because they are not used to SignWriting, but if they had learned it,  
like they learned to read the abstract symbols of the Roman alphabet,  
which they accept because they know it, they would accept written  
signs is really a matter of exposure to seeing signwritten  
documents more often, and then they would accept it like they accept  
that Chinese exists too...

Thank you for this link, Gerard...I am very happy to see it ;-)
