Re: Field's Notes on Hexapla for Genesis 4:1

On the footnote 2, it refers to a source "St. Anastas. Hexaem. Lib. VII." I'm assuming this is a St. Anastasia, but I don't know what the source is (Hexaem?). Can anyone help me? Actually, it's St. Anastasius of Sinai of the 7th and 8th centuries. The work is called Hexaemeron, referring to the six...

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

Change that. The problem I'm having is that "Microsoft Sans Serif" font is an old VGA font on my system, so it is not anti-aliased or anything that makes it appear nice.

Did someone request or need this font to be so high on the list before Tahoma or Arial?

It's the .postbody .content style that now causing the problem (ugliness).

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

I think I may want to reduce the size and the line spacing a little though, not much text fits on my laptop screen, and the size is disproportionate to the size of the higher level menus, so if I shrink my browser window down, I can't read the menus very easily. This new font size does not display ...

Re: Creating a "Reader's" Edition

The copyright status of the Greek text of a critical edition is an unresolved issue under U.S. copyright law. (The apparatus and other value-added material by the editor is copyrightable, of course.) To be safe and to be courteous, I would recommend using out-of-copyright texts for reader's editions...

As I feared, the holam gets its own space and took the cantillation mark with it.

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

How does the Hebrew look in http://ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=260&p=1074&sid=4f0a20fc4f76993cbdae4c7ed4b263a6#p1064 I think Arial Unicode MS is the culprit, spacing the vowel points. Could we please place Tahoma before Arial Unicode MS in the font list? It looks like fine to me in...

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

I'm still getting Lucida Grande displayed for my content (even outside of text boxes). This appears to be the case because the .content style on line 1180 of style.php is overriding any other font family specified elsewhere. As for text box, the relevant CSS style is #message-box textarea on line 25...

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

Tahoma has all the glyphs, and I think Arial Unicode MS has them too, so either of those will be better to list ahead of Lucida Grande. The text box has a different font family list, which is: "Trebuchet MS", Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;" Listed first is Trebuchet MS, but this too lacks th...
