The Daily Dozen

After playing the flute most of my life, I finally learned how to practice the flute in my mid-30s. There are certain things you should do, and things you should pay attention to when you do them. You don't just play scales, you listen for particular things as you play them, working on your tone or ...

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

This is looking good even on Internet Explorer 6 running on SP2: http://crossbrowsertesting.com/users/31546/screenshot/z70eb73b3d9201db4487/public Full results on all platforms tested here: http://crossbrowsertesting.com/users/31546/screenshots/z779decd0e8d292d0732/public Not sure how long those lin...

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

OK, I'm beginning to learn the tools for understanding what's going on here. I've always been a server guy, fairly far from the user interface. Chrome's "inspect element" is very helpful here.

Both postbodies and message boxes seem to use the right fonts now, at least on my system.

Re: ἐκ ... εἰς, ἀπὸ ... εἰς

In fact, I was going to ask Jonathan Robie about a discussion about Greek Prepositions specifically, EK...EIS... as it is used in Romans 1:17; II Corinthians 2:16 (2x); APO...EIS as used in II Corinthians 3:18. I have a 10 page paper listing relevant verses (?) in the LXX, Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha...

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

I'll have to find the right CSS tag for textbox entry. In the meantime, Preview is your friend. (I need to put my head down and do my day job for now.)

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

As far as I can tell, Lucida Grande for Windows does not have the pre-composed Greek glyphs in its font, so it should not be first in the list of fonts. OK, I demoted it: font-family: "Arial Unicode MS", "Liberation Sans", Tahoma, "Lucida Grande", sans-serif; I wonder if that will help the Windows ...

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

A phpBB theme can inherit another, so that makes it easier to design modified themes in a maintainable way. I haven't done this, but I've read that this is possible. Also: Does Didot do English text well? If there's an easy way to support Google Web Fonts in phpBB using the Prosilver theme, and Dido...

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

Where would that JavaScript reside? Not in the final page, that's clear, I'm wondering if you know what needs to be modified in the phpBB style to make this work?

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

People using Internet Explorer 6 may still have some problems, but they are two versions behind and we can simply tell them to upgrade their browser (for free). And not many people are still using Internet Explorer 6 (only 2.4% of total users). Incidentally, Firefox is now on top, and Chrome is slig...

For the benefit of anyone administering this forum in the future, what I'm using now differs from the default prosilver theme by only two lines.
