  Hi Olaf,

SignPuddle 1.5 uses the ISWA 2008 without BSW.  The current export page 
should not be used.  SBML should not be used.

You can use the test data for SignPuddle 2.  It converts the current 
SignBank data to the ISWA 2010 using BSW revision 3 with underscores.  
It creates a small XML files with a correctly linked  DTD.

View the XML definition file:

I created a custom export for Polish Sign Language (sgn 19) in SPML.  I 
zipped the file to reduce the size from 1.1 MB to 159 KB and to preserve 
the UTF-8 encoding:
http://www.signbankorg/signpuddle2/data/sgn/ (159 KB)

In the SPML files, you'll notice that there are underscores in the 
data.  This aides in searching but is not supported with the current 
SignWriting Image Server release.  I will be adding optional underscores 
in BSW for a future version of SWIS.

More information can be found online:

Let me know if you want me to refresh the data snapshot.  I'd be happy 
to discuss or explain in more detail.
