Yay!

I got to the signpuddle 1.6 url, select the US Dictionary, and export
export the "Entire Puddle."  After downloading the file, I tried to
locate this entry (a sign I entered for Wikipedia):

http://signbank.org/signpuddle1.6/searchword.php?ui=1&sgn=4&sid=10932&search=Wikipedia&type=any

I can't locate this entry in the sgn4.spml file I've downloaded.
Did I make an incorrect assumption about what data is being exported?
Is that symbol in the export?
