I am glad a conversion is possible. Very useful.

Good to know. Thanks.

Currently, SignPuddle Online only exports data. Each sign collection
(puddle) is available as an XML file, currently SPML v1.6. I am
updating the SPML version to 3.0. The documentation will start
appearing on SignPuddle.net soon.
The design of the individual signs is documented in
draft-slevinski-signwriting-text. Currently version "01".
I am currently working on a public API that will allow easier data
exchange to read and write SignPuddle data.
Nice to meet you Fabrizio. I plan on attending Val's 2014 international
event as well.
