Subject:  Re: Diagonal-Sagittal Hands

Valerie and list,

Attached here is a bitmap with my suggestion for diagonal-sagittal hands.

To me, the line across the hands represents the part of the hand that is
tilted toward the horizon. I suggest that the line be placed toward the
fingers if the fingers are the part that is farthest from the body (closest
to the horizon). If we move the line closer to the base of the hand it would
signify that the base is farthest from the body.

Personally this notation really only has value to me as a linguist, not as a
story writer. This notation is very confusing so I don't think it is worth
including in normal written texts. I've always found that textual context is
sufficient to clear up any doubt that might arise from the lack of this hand

So, for what it's worth, here is my bitmap.
