Hello Eda and everyone -

Yes, that is right. Do not use .bmp format, because the images that  
come from SignPuddle are .png format. And SignPuddle was originally  
designed for Mozilla and Firefox, so it is recommended that you use  
Firefox when using SignPuddle, or another browser that uses the  
Mozilla engine...

Internet Explorer works in general, but when it comes to SignPuddle,  
it is not always as good as Firefox...so if you stick to .PNG images,  
and use Firefox, it should go better for you.

Did you know that we have HELP files for SignPuddle?

Go to:

SignPuddle Help
http://www.signbank.org/signpuddle/help/

The manuals are in French, German, Arabic and English - no  
Portuguese ;-(

Val ;-)
