Putting Estrangelo font into the posts
I need to know how to put the Estrangelo letters into the posts. Also, any other language fonts.
Thank You.
Shlama Ivan,

When you post a message, there is a drop-down list above the text area called "Font Face". You can highlight any text and then choose the font you want.

Greetings all!

I have downloaded the fonts in the Forum Introduction folder and have them working in my text app called AppleWorks (I'm on a Mac), and also have Beth Mardutho Aramaic fonts working on Safari browser at the lexicon.

However, so far, I'm unable to read the Estranglo fonts in the forum posts, nor have I been able to compose a post that displays the selected font:

bracket-font=Estrangelo (V1.1)-bracket Peshittta text bracket-/font-bracket posts as [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]Peshittta text[/font]

or SIL Ezra:

bracket-font=SIL Ezra-bracket Hebrew text bracket-/font-bracket posts as Hebrew text

Am I entering the right names for the font styles? Have any other Mac users resolved this problem?

Hi KingsKeep,

Still trying to figure that out on this new software for the forum....I'll eventually get the functionality back up....keep posted.
Shlama Kingskeep,

I too use a Mac.....I had some trouble with Syriac fonts that took several weeks to work out.

I MIGHT be able to help you with Syriac fonts.

There's several locations that are obscure to get more (Syriac fonts) that I could point you to.

PM me if I can be of help.

Shlama in Eshoo, Albion
Dear Kingskeep,

I answered your PM, but I understand that my Private Messages *ARE NOT* being received by other Forum members.

Did you get my PM's??

Thanks, Albion
Yes, Albion, your PM's came through fine. Thank you. I have the Beth Mardutho fonts installed and working in Safari and they work at

My understanding is that the Estranglo V1.1 font is needed for this forum, and Paul explained that this is part of the forum functionality that is not yet restored. I mainly wanted to be sure that if it was available, that I used it while reading prior posts and in any post I put up for the sake of clarity. And going through the prior posts, I'm learning to read the keystrokes. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

In Firefox, the SIL Ezra font is functioning and displaying in Hebrew characters.
