Hi SignWriting List,

In 2004, I started collaborating with Valerie.  She showed me the 
SignSpelling Guidelines of 2004.

Fast-forward to today and I'm really excited about SignMaker 2022. It is 
a complete and useful implementation that works as expected. Here is the 
above sign in SignMaker 2022.

Here is a link to the public editor for SignMaker 2022 with the sign 
preloaded using FSW.

Formal SignWriting in ASCII (FSW) works nicely in URLs.
SignWriting in Unicode (SWU) is longer and more cryptic when used in URL 
links and UTF-8 encoding.


However, SignWriting in Unicode (SWU) is really beautiful and meaning 
when viewed with the one-dimensional font.

Notice the common sorting string in the 2004 cover and the SignWriting 
in Unicode(SWU) string image.

The latest code is available to be downloaded at any point. SignMaker is 
HTML, CSS, and JS.  Download and unzip, then open "index.html" or 
"demo.html" in file manager on Windows or the Finder on Mac.  You can 
also set up SignMaker 2022 as a private server or a public mirror.  More 
details to follow.

This is just the beginning.  Once I finish SignMaker 2022, I'm going to 
work on SignText 2022 and the SignWriting Cloud.  I have an evolving 
plan that is coming together nicely.  I can fit it in during the early 
mornings and weekends.  2022 is going to be so much fun.  Together, we 
are going to create large datasets and apply machine learning for an 
amazing future.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
