Avatars, yes, a possibility, but of which dialect of signing? As I
understand it BSL has dialects (for want of a better expression) There
is an ASL avatar system, but that language is nowvere near as well
understood over here as BSL

Whilst I can now see a benefit of providing sign language 'avatars' on 
the site I am interested to see that the RNID don't use it on their new 
site - if anyone on their site would, they would.
