Compatibility issues (feel free to add to this page)[ኮድ አርም]

While playing with fonts for various international wiki's today, I downloaded a font for Devanagari (Indic) script called "raghu.ttf" - once in my font folder, it appeared as "raghindi.ttf"... It allowed me to see all the writing on the Sanskrit, Hindi and Marathi wikis perfectly...! (Instead of little squares, not that I can read that script anyway...) But then when I returned here, all the Ge'ez text that was either "bold" or "italic" showed up as "????"... So I moved raghindi.ttf out of my font folder again, and all the Ge'ez was restored immediately... So, if by chance you can see most of the Ge'ez writing, but a few of the words look like question marks, look to see if you have raghindi.ttf in your computer's font folder, and if so, simply move it to another folder!

Compatibility with Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.4 - tried washera 4.0 and Ethopia Jiret. Works fine in Internet Explorer, in Firefox i only see question marks. Tried changing to UTF-8 and other settings - didnt succeed. Any hints out there?

I was having this same problem some of the time a while back, other times the font would work fine. I finally got it to stop by going Tools => Options... => Content => setting Default font = GF Zemen Unicode, then Advanced... => setting all fonts for "Ethiopic" to the same font. Hope that helps... ፈቃደ (ውይይት) 23:01, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Restriction?[ኮድ አርም]

Why can’t I edit some Ethiopic pages? Another restriction by a __ society?] (unsigned)

Hi, you must be referring to Wikipedia:Can't see the font?, since it is the only locked page right now according to Special:Protectedpages... I just semi-protected it about 2 weeks ago because of unusually heavy anonymous vandalism, as recorded in the article history... 'Semi-protected' means it can only be edited by logged-in user-names at least 4 days old. Regards, ፈቃደ (ውይይት) 19:44, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

THIS PAGE WAS SUPPOSED TO SAY GEEZ[ኮድ አርም]

NOT AMHARIC. BECAUSE THERE ARE LANGUAGES WRITTEN IN GEEZ AND ARE NOT CALLED AMHARIC, THEY COMPRISE OVER THE TOTAL NUMBER OF AMHARIC LANGUAGE SPEAKERS. (unsigned)

OK, I changed it to "Amharic and Ge'ez fonts" - since the Amharic alphabet is slightly modified from the Ge'ez, and all these fonts do include the specific Amharic modifications for purposes of typing Amharic, they can justifiably be called 'Amharic fonts' as well. Is that better? If you like spotting miniature issues that finely, you really ought to get an account, learn more about how wikipedia works (like talkpages), and try editing the pages yourself. We could use the help and you probably know it costs nothing! ፈቃደ (ውይይት) 14:16, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Title bar[ኮድ አርም]

I can see the font fine and I use IE (monospace font displays) but on other elements of the GUI, such as tooltips, title bars, etc, do not display it. Rather they display it as a white block. How is this fixed? -68.224.117.152 18:12, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Good question - I notice the same thing on IE, but since I discovered Mozilla Firefox does not have this problem, I have been using that browser instead. For this reason, I have not translated the tooltips at all, and have made pull-down menu elements bilingual where possible, because I know these do not show up on IE. ፈቃደ (ውይይት) 18:41, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Cross-browser display issue[ኮድ አርም]

Hi, one minor note--on the homepage of the Amharic Wikipedia, most of the page will display fine in Firefox and IE7 on XP, except for one line toward the bottom; the links near the text "Wikimedia Foundation". These aren't displaying for me in IE7 on XP.

Are there font declarations in the .css file that are governing this? The general question I have is, what is the best way to ensure support for Ethiopic text in IE7 on XP; is it possible without explicit font declarations but relying on character set detection or a locale statement alone, and letting the browser pick the right font from the local system's font file if it is there.

Regards, Chuck

Outdated[ኮድ አርም]

Isn't this page outdated now that you have WebFonts? You should probably at least unlink it from MediaWiki:Sitenotice. Regards, Nemo bis (talk) 14:34, 9 ሰፕቴምበር 2012 (UTC)

I've unlinked it. Thanks. Elfalem (talk) 17:08, 9 ሰፕቴምበር 2012 (UTC)
