[Sw-l] Dissertation about SL Avatar

Hello to all,

I had sent the below email back in October when I was starting my
undergraduate dissertation; I would like to thank all those who replied,
the material which was passed on to me was quite helpful.

I'm now facing a problem though, all the previous examples of SL Avatars
make use of SWML, and naturally I took the same route, but now that I've
gotten to the final stage of the dissertation I've noticed that output from
SignPuddle to SWML is no longer supported.

I would like to ask whether there's anyway that I could either convert FSW
to SWML or how I could implement FSW into my program. Any readings on FSW
would be highly appreciated as I can't find anything apart from the
SignPuddle wiki page
<http://signpuddle.net/wiki/index.php/MSW:Formal_SignWriting>, from which I
still can't figure out exactly how I can get the symbols from FSW.

Any examples of programs which make use of FSW would help as well.

Best Regards,

  Claude Mifsud
