  7. 7. The SignWriting Stack 2015 iOSWindows Linux Android OS X Explorer FireFox Chrome Safari Opera TrueType Fonts (TTF) The Bottom Layers SignWriting works on desktops, tablets, and phones. Forward compatible, rather than backward compatible. Vertical Writing Mode has very poor support.
  8. 8. Wide Operating System Support Android support through CSS font-face or App.
  9. 9. Freeform positioning Script Encoding Model PUA Plane 15 (1,179 characters) 2-D Script SignWriting has the largest data set and the most advanced 2-D searching of any planar script. Number characters Express the concept of the ruler principle with characters.
