Hello Charles -
Thanks for the offer to beta test SignWriter 5.0. I appreciate it. Since
you are skilled in SignWriting and have typed so many SignWriter files in
the past, testing to see how your old files "convert" to the new format
will be an important task.

new program are not the same. SignWriter 4.3 for MS-DOS is designed for
laser printers, and only some other kinds of printers work. But SignWriter
5.0 is using the java programming language to print and it should be more
We now have four people who have offered to beta test, counting yourself.

might be interested too.
Many thanks for your offer to help -
Valerie Sutton :-)
