Hi Val,

The SVG is using the ISWA 2010. The link was created using the 
conversion routines for SignPuddle 1.6. Please let me know if you find 
any errors.

The data uses the Cartesian SignWriting markup with proposed Unicode 
characters. The data is compatible with a much smaller (2 to 6 times 
smaller) ASCII markup called Kartesian SignWriting which uses symbol 
keys instead of the proposed Unicode characters.

The data is based on the ISWA 2010 symbols. Four different strings are 
important to know for each symbol.

The first symbol of the ISWA 2010 has the symbol key "S100-0-0". The BSW 
string expands the key to create: 100-38c-392. This converts to proposed 
Unicode: 𝠀𝪌𝪒. This is encoded in URL links using UTF-8 as 
%F0%9D%A0%80%F0%9D%AA%8C%F0%9D%AA%92.

All of the following links are equivalent:
http://www.signbank.org/swis2/glyph.php?style=svg&key=10000
http://www.signbank.org/swis2/glyph.php?style=svg&bsw=10038c392
http://www.signbank.org/swis2/glyph.php?style=svg&sym=𝠀𝪌𝪒
http://www.signbank.org/swis2/glyph.php?style=svg&sym=%F0%9D%A0%80%F0%9D%AA%8C%F0%9D%AA%92

If we can get a symbol font working for the proposed Unicode characters, 
we would see the symbol image rather than the proposed Unicode string of 
𝠀𝪌𝪒 and maybe even %F0%9D%A0%80%F0%9D%AA%8C%F0%9D%AA%92.

For sanity and easy of use, I prefer working with the symbol key, such 
as "S-100-0-0". The last 2 digits can be thought of as individual rotary 
dials. The second to last has a dial from 0 to 5. The last digit has a 
dial from 0 to 9 then a, b, c, d, e and f.

The first symbol in base 100
S-100-0-0
http://www.signbank.org/swis2/glyph.php?style=svg&key=10000

Rotated symbol in base 100
S-100-0-1
http://www.signbank.org/swis2/glyph.php?style=svg&key=10001

The last symbol in base 100
S-100-5-f
http://www.signbank.org/swis2/glyph.php?style=svg&key=1005f

The day for the ISWA 2010 in SignPuddle approaches quickly. I'm hoping 
for a smooth transition and I'm looking forward to leveraging the new 
data formats.

Regards,
-Steve
