SignWriting List
January 9, 2001

Thank you, Angus! This is an interesting development and may possibly
make typing symbols in SignWriting on email much easier, combined
with SignWriting True Type Fonts. There are several people developing
SignWriting fonts now, but the issue of how to access all those
symbols, of course, has been the stumbling block in the past...

So once again, you supply us with great information! I noticed they
didn't mention Arabic in the message below, darn it!

Have you tried KickKeys, Angus?
