SignWriting List
April 18, 2011

THANK YOU, Steve, for this outstanding work. It is really fascinating, to view all the sources for the different formats you have developed. This message is a treasure trove of information for all of us...

....and Alan, you have BSW once again!

Val ;-)

BSW no longer includes characters for layout or annotation.  The BSW foundation is expressly defined and can be used with any real or theoretical higher level text encoding for SignWriting that uses the ISWA 2010.
