SignWriting List
December 22, 2000

Dear SW List members, and all of those at SignNet!!

Many thanks for this great report and photo. We are really impressed
with your work in Porto Alegre ;-)

Your captioning work in SignWriting at the Museum sounds very
interesting ... And I am happy to know that your course was a
success! The handwritten document you attached was fun to read!

Congratulations to Marcia Campos and her team of software developers.
Yes...we would love to see a translation summary when you are ready...

As you know, I am meeting with Antonio Carlos on the 26th-28th of
December, and will hand him a document that compares the SignWriter
4.3 symbol set with the SignWriter 5.0 symbol set...I appreciate all
you are doing for the computerization of SignWriting in Brazil ;-))

And Merry Christmas and a Happy Year 2001!!

Val ;-)
