Re: WEFT webpage font embedding--Call for feedback

2004-05-07 Thread Arash Zeini
Hi Connie,

On Konqueror 3.2.0 on KDE 3.2.0 all is fine except h and z in Hafiz 
(fi). The same applies to Busq as it uses the same h.

Greetings,

 We've had a few discussions about WEFT before in the past but never
 really explored it completely.  Therefore, I made this demo page in both
 English and Persian and embedded Tahoma, Koodak(by FarsiWeb) and Arabic
 Typesetting:

 Can you please check if Weft has worked? Do you see my fonts correctly?
 Is the Yeh (medial form) showing up correctly in all fonts, especially
 on Win98? Is the load time any longer than usual? If you have the old,
 buggy Tahoma font, is my corrected font showing up instead?  If you have
 the old Sinasoft or Borna Koodak, is my FarsiWeb Koodak showing up?

 Please report your findings! Be sure to mention which version of Windows
 and IE. By the way, you have to uninstall these fonts if you have them,
 otherwise, the test is not too helpful :)

 As you may know, Weft only works on Windows and IE so don't bother to
 check on anything else.  Also please don't look at the source code! I
 was in a great hurry and yes, it's a mess.  Anyone who is qualified is
 welcome to redo it if too unbearable.  I would appreciate that!

 Thanks!

Excellent book. If you are interested in lexicography this is a must. 
Thanks for the recommendation Connie.

 Hi Arash,

  The same list is also available from www.amitis.org under the
  terminology section.

 I couldn't locate the terminology section. Can you give a direct URL?

 Thanks,
 Connie

Hi Connie,

At this time you need to login to see Terminology. It is part of the 
standard menu for reg. users. The reason you need to register is because 
people are able to submit new entries. We need to change this later so 
that anonymous users can see and reg. users can see and post.

Greetings,
Arash
