testing signature font
what do you guys think? old-style script look better? (or at least more obvious)

Re: testing signature font
was it buggy before? firefox on the computer i used at work couldn't figure out that the vowels went below...

or did you just not like the new standard hebrew font? this is more a biblical script, the other is modern hebrew print (used on billboards in israel). here's the comparison:

Re: testing signature font
do they look geometric, or like script?

Re: testing signature font
On my computer last night, the fonts were more geometric looking, and the vowel symbols (?) appeared directly below particular letters.

even the new one? this is a screencap from the post above -- firefox 1.0.7, win xp pro sp1. looks the same on ie 6.whatever too.

This morning, on my computer at work (Firefox running on Linux) both styles still look identical, but now the first letter (the one on the right) has little squiggles on the parts on either side of the main part of the letter,

squiggless? like how?

and the vowel symbols (?) appear between letters (although still below them).

i think that's because you don't have the appropriate hebrew plugins. should i just remove the vowels entirely?

There is no Hebrew at all in the post to which I am responding.

there should have been the old one in the post, and new one as the sig. any chance you can screencap for me?

Re: testing signature font
no, only the linux one is buggy. that's another common hebrew font, although not as common as the ones in my screencap.

just goes to show -- macs are weird all around. they can't even pick standard fonts :P

This is a test
