Hi Valerie, 

there is still some kind of problem. And Steve mentioned some weeks or even
months ago that he is going to fix that too. The good point is that you can
write many signs in a signmail - message. 

The problem is that Signtext allows only a given number of maybe 14 to 20
signs - depends woh many graphemes are embedded - who knows - well Steve
should - smile. 

So relpading a signmail in Signtext can cause a problem if Signtext does not
accept more than a given number of signs. 

Stefan ;-)

Charles and Everyone -

The SignMail glitch has been fixed today! I guess you didn't catch that?

So many messages today it can get confusing I know...I have not read all
your messages, but if you are having problems viewing SignMail in your email
software, then you need to change either the software you are using to view
your email, or...change the settings in your email software to view HTML
messages - 

I love Apple Mail and their web version, called ME.com, because you can see
all the visual SignMail inside your email messages, and Stefan found out
that googlemail, and gmail works too - and I know that Eudora also sees
visual attachments and HTML inside your email messages -

So now you CAN answer the email at the bottom of a SignMail message now
without retyping anything - Steve fixed that this morning - thank you Steve!

Val ;-)

scratch. I understand the limitations of the system, it will require a lot
of work to get something to process fast enough to cut and paste, like we do
in email, so we can actually respond back, in sign language, quoting someone
else's words, and their accents, without having to retype their letter.

Forward-Diagonal and Back-Diagonal hand positions - I think the slash and
the slash with the dot were too confusing and the symbol is not used enough
to warrant having it an official symbol in the ISWA 2010 - we can write just
fine, with choosing either the Parallel to the Floor or Parallel to the
Front Wall positions, and then if there is a movement that goes
Forward-Diagonal or Back-Diagonal, that we have, that makes it clear ...so I
personally would hesitate to put in so much detail...but for research of

necessary - > > If I were to use the slash as up and out, I'd put it at the

 and in the middle it could be a thumb projecting. > > I will make this into
a PDF so you see what I mean from my lessons. It applies to every hand so
that now you can show all those 45 degree variants that are sometimes a real
challenge to write. I'm still experimenting. Wow. That is a great deal of
detail. Sounds like you are working very hard, and a very interesting
project! Thanks for sharing with us, Charles - Val ;-) Valerie Sutton
