Hi Val,
     Thank you for all your support and I know you have a lot on the 
go.   So I just want you to know that I appreciate your help very much.  
I am also happy to see that you are being balanced with the energy you

conversations on the list.

That pretty much answers my question.  I was wanting some examples of 
Syllable 4 so that I could see what they were like and try and automate 
it.  So Syllable 4 are location lookups are mostly Category 6 and are so 
rarely used that there aren´t many examples in the Puddles.  So there 
isn´t much to automate but Syllable 4 is where Category 6 symbols and 
few others for the face, neck symbols are put in the SignSpelling sequence.
