I have been using that!

And actually, by browsing around for what I'm looking for, I've
learned a *lot* about how SignWriting glyphs are organized. The
photos of the hand shapes have really accelerated my learning
individual glyphs.

What I'm needing, though, is a search ability. I'd like to look
up a symbol in SignPuddle and cross-reference the hand-shape in
the page you linked.

It's a variation of what I was trying earlier by using the hand1
font... I manually browsed for ~1/2 of the shapes I'm interested
in, and decided to try another shortcut. :-)
