.   Are there some rules of style I can read about?  Something that would help decide which writing is better?  I assume that the ASL signs have been reviewed by more people and take them as the example to follow, but that might not always be the case.

Looking for something similar in ASL I ended up in "make", but there are two versions, one with * and one with #.  They do not use arrows though, so I guess I can also do without.
