Hi Ingvild -
Thanks for your great comment -

You are correct - we will only be using these acronyms in regards to the
internal coding of SignWriter 5.0 - the person using SignWriter 5.0 will
never see the acronyms I posted to the list - only programmers and myself.

Of course now the SignWriting List has seen them too!

But it was never my intent to use them in actual sign language documents -
That is totally up to the signers who are writing the documents. Everyone
has complete freedom do what is correct for their own language :-)

Valerie :-)
