I did not mean to upset you Valerie, or you Ingvild. I stated the "BUTLER"
system of orientation as opposed to the Parkhurst system of orientation.
Since they have an easily published diagram, I have given you my equivalent,
which can also be made into a full page for a future book. I would propose
doing equivalent diagrams for the back of the hand, parallel to the floor,
as well as parallel to the wall so that people can see the 8 rotations in
each direction of each of the hand shapes, at least 64 orientations for any
given handshape. We should be proud of you Valerie, for creating a system
that can do so much with so simple a principle.
