Proper nouns are often spelled out in SignWriting.  See
where the word "Sally" is translated into SignWriting (third page,
fourth column, first row).

How is the word "Wikipedia" written in SignWriting?  I figure it's
either spelled out or there's a sign for "wiki".  Probably the latter
in some circles, and the former in others.
