So with this could we get back to what was possible with the old SignWriter program, able to switch between Roman alphabet sentences and SW signs and back again in the same message, search for a sign, find and replace, and all the other "normal" things for word processing? I'd love to be able to keyboard signs again instead of being dependent upon a mouse-driven program.

Greetings list,

I've updated the ISWA 2010 font reference to include the ISWA 2010 font database.

I've updated the SignWriting Image Server to be able to use the database font.  Available on GitHub.

The font database is an improvement in size and speed.  Instead of tens of thousands of files, multiple fonts can be included in a single file.  The increase in speed is noticeable when comparing the filesystem font to the database font.  Very exciting.
