Subject:  something nice

I found this in the library, thought it was nice.

page 86:
The writing system which seems most likely to become popular with
non-linguists is Valerie Sutton's and the Deaf Action Committee's Sign
Writing. This is a fairly iconic system which is relatively easy to learn
and use, can readily be adapted to different signed languages, and is
currently being taught in a school in Nicaragua, as well as being used by
small groups of individuals throughout the world. Although it is not yet
widely employed, it is gaining in popularity.
