Hello Fernando and Crew!
That is so sweet of you, to respond to Stefan's request. Actually Stefan is
not requesting a finished dictionary at all, nor will he be using it for
learning Brazilian signs...confusing, isn't it?!

So don't feel pressured to finish your important work in Brazil...take your
time and do it right.

Stefan is asking for something totally different....he only wants the .dic
and .din files now...not because he wants to learn Brazilian signs, but
because he wants to learn to read SignWriting in general, so from there he
can create his own German Sign Language dictionary file. So he doesn't care
if the files are perfect or not.

It is an interesting phenomenon, that reading a dictionary from one signed
language, would help a person create a dictionary in another signed
language...I never thought of that before myself....but that is what is
happening!

Val ;-)
