Subject: Re: Fixpoints for GIFs?

Dan - regarding the Fixed Points for the SignWriting symbols - you
are right - they are absolutely necessary for correct rotation of
symbols. Those fixed points come directly from the SignWriter 4.4
symbol editor, developed by Richard Gleaves. Then Antonio Carlos
documented the fixed points...as you can see by this message:

There is one big file (4Mb) with all the GIF images. There are also
many smaller files with the whole set of images split apart to ease
the downloads (and yet the files are big!). And there is one .txt
file with the fixpoint information......
So Dan - please see if you can find that text file about the Fixed
points and tell us what happened! Val ;-)
