Thank you, Michael, for the effort you are going to....I visited your web
page above and it is really beautiful. I know it is a lot of work to
develop this...

I am happy to see that you are using the abbreviation "sgn", since
SignWriting documents typed with the SignWriter Computer Program are called
".sgn" files. So it fits well....

In our java program, this is the name of a file referring to messages in
Spanish words from Spain:

MessagesBundle_es_ES.properties

The lower case "es" stands for the language of Spanish (Espanol), and the
upper case ES stands for the country of Spain (Espana).

So with your coding method, the name of a file referring to messages in
Spanish Sign Language from Spain would be:

MessagesBundle_sgn_ES.properties

Right?

Valerie :-)
