Dear Claudia, Bill, Valerie and the List,
I am also working on a section on comparing notations for sign languages -
so I'm hoping that I'll manage to see the SignFont soon - as so far the
archived pages are not working for me.

Claudia could you give me the title of your dissertation please? I would
like to reference your work as work in progress if you give me permission.
The title of my dissertation in progress is 'SignWriting: towards an
orthography for Maltese sign language'. Goodluck with your work!

Sending warm wishes to all of you around the globe,
maria
