I can't find the font drop-down table to put in estrangelo script.

What am I doing wrong?

I got it to work with the manual method.

You must precede the script by typing the code "left bracket" font=Estrangelo (V1.1)] and ending the script by typing "left bracket"/font]. (Icould not actually type the "left brackets" in this reply because the font would have been activated.) You can speed the process by using the fonts= tab on the top right side of the draft page, adding the Estrangelo (V1.1), and typing the script characters between the two sets of brackets. The spacing that I show here is crucial.

The same process works for the Hebrew characters by using the code font=SIL Ezra and for Greek the code font=SIL Galatia

I used the "Normal" tab to change the font size of the script to "Large" after blocking the script that I wanted to enlarge.

Estrangelo (V1.1) and East Syriac Adiabene (V1.1) letters, when joined in the middle of a word, are represented by lower case letters. Upper case letters are endings (sofits). There are a few exceptions to this rule.
