Yes - SignWriting can be placed into Unicode. I feel very blessed to be
working out the details with Michael Everson, who is one of the key people
in Unicode development.

I hope to be sending Michael a document with a detailed listing of all of
the SignWriting symbols this summer. Then it may take several years before
the Unicode of SignWriting is ready.

When it is ready, I suspect it will benefit all of our work, because it
will be easier for other programmers to create new typing techniques with
the SignWriting symbols.
