Hi Bill,

The SignWriting Icon Server only has one function that deals with SWML-S 
called "swml2ksw".  Located in file spl.php for "SignPuddle Legacy".

After the SWML-S is converted to KSW, an additional conversion is needed 
to create the FSW called "ksw2fsw". Located in file msw.php

The SignWriting Icon Server can only read SWML-S and does not contain 
any functions that write SWML-S.

The XML based solution of SWML-S is a processing intensive solution.  It 
requires extra libraries to support the XML and it is slow for large 
amounts of data.

The character based solution of FSW is much easier and faster to use.  
Rather than processing with XML libraries, the strings can be recognized 
with Regular Expressions.
