Hi Jonathan,

The SQL is for MySQL databases. I'm not sure how many changes would be
needed for MSSQL.

For a more complete unique ID, the creation date stamp could be
appended. For merging puddles, I was planning to compare the creation
date stamp for entires with the same ID. If the creation date stamp is
the same, the modification date stamp could be used to determine which
is the newer edit. If the creation date stamp is different, then one of
the entries will need a new id.

I haven't read up on the GUID yet. I'll take a look.

The current design for SignPuddle doesn't know anything about
languages. It can use sign language or voice language.

The new design will be language aware. Each entry can have several
items. Each item has a defined language. The first item could be in
ASL and the second could be in BSL and the third could be in English.

I think this design will be very useful with specialized dictionaries.
A Bible centric dictionary for translation would be one such example.

I renamed the name tag as the term tag. It felt more natural.

I'm trying to use the same SPML format for both dictionaries and
literature. Each entry can have multiple terms but only one text. For
dictionaries, the terms would be the individual signs themselves along
with possible variations. For dictionaries, the text would be a sign
language definition for the entry.

For literature, the terms would be a title, while the text would be the
actual text of the entry.

With the design of BSW, I tried to separate content from presentation.
Similar to a straight ascii text file.

Can you give an example or two of how you think it could work?

Regards,
