Yes. And we all read left-handed documents written in SignWriting without
noticing too. Left-handed signers write left-handed signing all the time
in SignWriting. That is normal.
Here's one document on the web:
SignWriter Newsletter Spring 1997 Issue
The newsletter is written in left handed signing by Darline Clark Gunsauls.
So I was simply asking...since nobody notices the difference much anyway,
and since we type, read and write both anyway, why would we need a
programming feature to switch back and forth?
