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 ;-)
