Thanks for the suggestion, Roberto. Here's what I've found so far:

<blockquote cite="www.visicast.co.uk/members/
milestones/M5-8SiGMLStandard.pdf">
The original plan saw M5-8 proposing a final definition of SiGML that would
be offered for adoption by W3C. The title used was "Final SiGML Proposed to
W3C". In practice, SiGML has not been used outside the ViSiCAST project so
it is unrealistic to assume that the definition is ready to meet a wider set
of needs. Further development can be expected through follow-on projects
such as the eContent project, eSIGN. </blockquote>

The E-Sign project has to do with signing content on government pages within
the European Union. It uses a plug-in (for IE and Windows only) that
displays signing avatars, and there is an authring tool which generates
SiGML output that can be rendered by the avatar.

My sense is that we shouldn't include SiGM in the Resources section *at this
time*. We can add it later if support for the language improves.

John
As far as I can tell, SiGML (Signing Gesture Markup Language) has some
promise but is used only in the E-Sign /E-Content projects . The required
plug-in is available only for Windows and IE.

    Oggetto: Action item: resources on sign language video
      
    On the 26 January call I took an action to add resources on filming sign
    language interpretation to two techniques for GL 1.2.  
    
    The resources have been added to:
    * Including a sign language interpreter in a corner of the video stream
    [1]
    * Providing a synchronized video of the sign language interpreter that
    can be displayed in a different viewport or overlaid on the image by the
    player  [2]
