I have never heard of si5s either! I'm grateful that this was brought to
our attention. I googled it and the wikipedia general information came up:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Si5s

i might need to take a look at his thesis - if anyone has a link to his
work, or a contact of the person who created this system, would be good to
try and trace him..at first glance - comparing the written versions of
that ASL sign, there seem to be similarities between SignWriting and si5s
- i really would like to investigate this!!
