Hi Stefan,
good to know about your visit to the Polish Deaf school of Lubliniec 
(Lublinitz). I know that school by its name only. I hope your project will 
succeed and the Polish students and teachers get interested in 
GebaerdenSchrift :-)
Thank you for your readiness to help me with spelling problems. Some time 
ago I was quite good in the SW spelling but now I see so many new symbols in 
SignPuddle...! :-)
BTW, your textbook I bought in Brussels back then will be very helpful for 
me now.
