I finally just scanned in a sig and saved it as a file. Then I just 
incorporate it in the letter or document as required if possible. 
Sometimes you have to be a little creative if the form is a PDF. My 
argument is as yours: if a digital sig on a fax is acceptable, a 
scanned sig in a file should be equally valid.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
