Everybody needs more fonts on their machine. In
order to correctly convey information, we use a number of fonts.03/27/2000
The Symbol font (Truetype) is used to show occassional Greek
characters. We also use a font that uses upper ASCII to show Hebrew in the same manner as
"Web Hebrew" fonts (with the same character assignments) but with added
features. Included in the font is transliteration symbols for Hebrew in two schemes to
make it backwards compatible with our first special font we used on our sites. And instead
of using the "square script" used to represent Hebrew today and over the last
few milennia, we use Palaeo-Hebrew script. Palaeo-Hebrew has been used in the past to
archaize, that is, to preserve a link to an earlier state of things. That is after all,
what we are about, so Palaeo is the perfect script for us to use.
Our masthead shows an example of the Evyoni Palaeo-Hebrew font. It
is mapped to keys just as the various Hebrew "web fonts" but includes standard
Hebrew transliteration most used in grammars and articles (based on W.S. LaSor, Handbook
of Biblical Hebrew, vol.I. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1980. pp. 220-1).
Most pages featuring these transliteration and Palaeo-Hebrew
characters (which the Evyoni font allows the reader to see correctly) are marked with a at the page top. And the picture is linked to this page.
