Hello Ron -
The book is not completed yet, Ron. I was just telling you of some of our
future plans. Searching through thousands of signs, sorted by
Sign-Symbol-Sequence, is a skill that must be learned, so the little book I
mentioned, would someday teach that skill. But that is a future goal.
The ultimate computer program will have the ability to sort by any symbol,
and also the Roman Alphabet too, so if a person does not understand how to
find a sign when looking up by symbols, they can always fall back on using
the English alphabet, which they learned in school!
