Hi Steve,

     The work you are doing with the Universal Shaping Engine looks very 
interesting, to be able to have Signwriting signs clustered properly and 
sign text flow outside of the browser in most of the major operating 
systems.

     I have a question if in the meantime the SignWriting 2010 and 
sw10.js will it be completely replaced by  Sutton SignWriting and 
SuttonSignWriting.js.

     Are you planning on replacing it in SignMaker2015? What plans do 
you have for SignMaker 2015?

Wish you the best with your projects.

Regards,

Jonathan
