Abstract: As websites are getting international in content and readership, a need for a language neutral and intuitive representation of common messages are needed for websites. We survey existing common communication standards and propose a common visual representation protocol based on sign language. Common phrase types and formation syntax for visual representation are presented. The proposed representation protocol is equally useful for mobile devices. Mobile devices are known to be characterised with users of international background, small screen, and mobile constraints. Our proposed common visual representation can be a good solution for these known challenges facing mobile devices.
