Hi Ingvild,

Do you want to use the sorting symbols in the Spatial SignSpelling 
rather than the SignSpelling Sequence?  Can you show an example?

In talking with Val, we agreed that the sorting symbols were for extra 
detail in the sequence for sorting and should not be used in the 
spelling meant for reading.

We can look at SymbolGroup 30 to help discuss this issue.
