SignWriting List

Hello Charles - Thanks for this nice message.

The Brazilian database you mention sounds terrific. It is a little
different, I guess, because it sounds like they are storing language
in their database, and actually typing language.

In the SymbolBank, I am not storing language...there are no signs in
the database...only symbols and how they work...

Later I hope to add another database called SignBank, which will
start working with complete signs and language.

Two very different databases ;-)

Val ;-)
