Stroke Marks Hand
Parallel With Floor
When typing by computer, the small space at
the knuckle joint that represents the hand parallel
with the floor is typed quickly by tapping on
a certain key on the computer keyboard.
writing by hand, creating a symbol with a space
at the knuckle joint can be time consuming.
you will notice that one horizontal stroke is
used to indicate the space at the knuckle joint.
It is faster to write than to write a perfect
space by hand.
This quick horizontal stroke is written after
the symbol is completed, a little like returning
to "dot the i" when writing in English.
It is important to make the stroke horizontal,
and not diagonal.
