With Formal SignWriting, a sign is written as a two-part word. The
optional prefix is a temporal order for sorting and other time based
processing. The spatial signbox is mandatory.
The sign in question:
The "A" starts the temporal prefix. The symbol keys start with S
followed by 5 additional characters. The "M" starts the spatial
signbox. The "M" stands for middle lane. Other options are "L" for
left and "R" for right.
So to break down the sign...
A S10041 S10049 S20600 M 18x23 S10041 n3xn7 S10049 n17xn7 S20600 n11xn23
Sorting prefix of "A S10041 S10049 S20600"
Spatial signbox of "M 18x23 S10041 n3xn7 S10049 n17xn7 S20600 n11xn23"
This sign will need to be converted to FSW using the center coordinate
of 500,500. The prefix will stay the same.
