Hi SignWriting List,

I shared this information with Valerie this morning and she asked that I 
share it with the list.

Unicode 8 is soon to be released, and I noticed that some editors on 
Wikipedia are starting to update the appropriate pages and create new one.

On the main SignWriting article, the Unicode section has been updated.

/"SignWriting is the first writing system for sign languages to be 
included in the //Unicode Standard 
<>//. 672 characters were added in 
the //Sutton SignWriting 
in Unicode version 8.0 released in June 2015. This set of characters is 
based on SignWriting's standardized symbol set//^[8] 
<> //and defined 
character encoding model.//^[9] 
<> //^[5] 
<> //"/

There is a new page about the Sutton SignWriting Unicode block of code 

I added an info box to the page above.

I also added a SignWriting Section to the Help section on the 
Multilingual Support page.

If you have the TrueType fonts installed on your system, the above table 
will look like this:

There are other scattered updates throughout the English Wikipedia. More 
updates are needed.  It is a marvelous work in progress.
