Hi Madson,

The searching is my favorite part.  It is something unique and beautiful 
that doesn't exist anywhere else.

I too like SignMail.  I haven't spent the time necessary to see if I can 
get it working again.  I will try to get to it this week coming up.

Have you tried the "White on black" preference?

The new SignMaker is built using Formal SignWriting.  FSW has been 
stable for over 2 years and it is the reason that the advanced searching 
is possible.  FSW is here to stay.

Right now, it would be possible to use the new SignMaker with the 
PersonalPuddle in an indirect way.  After you make a sign with the new 
SignMaker, go to the "dictionary" tab.  Select and copy the FSW string.  
In the PersonalPuddle, open the appropriate puddle, and press the "New 
entry" button.

The page to define a new entry will appear.  In the "Terms and Titles" 
section, just paste the FSW string in any of the blanks. When you save 
the entry, the PersonalPuddle will know that the string is really FSW 
and treat it appropriately.

Even though we've made a lot of progress, there is still a lot further 
to go.  Eventually, the new SignMaker will be directly integrated in 

Thanks for your interest and patience.  We are getting closer and closer.
