The only thing I can think of that has anything with relations to location on the hands is for the fingers and for the palm of the hand. They are found under SymbolGroup 29, which is not used in daily writing but for more detailed research. Is that what you were referring to?

I know Val was off for a well deserved break. But we are still wondering about that too I believe it´s the same as number 1 and 2 in Syllable 4.

I have done Sylables 1-3 with a great measure of success so long as there aren´t more than four hands and a couple movement symbols. For composite signs like "Good morning" in Honduran Sign Language it´s not great at all, but otherwise I think that it is a time saver.
