Re: Balgruf

Well, is it alright with you that I do what you suggested? I am not one for exploiting loopholes, I will only do it if you are happy for me to do that.

Re: Balgruf

Is the name used for the font the subject of copyright? Would you consider renaming the font and then uploading it directly to this forum please? Although it is a very nice looking font and has great potential use, alas the name is somewhat concerning to me due to my concerns over possible copyright...

Re: Balgruf

I tried the online text test using the twelve characters needed for Esperanto and I am pleased to note that they are included in the font.

ĈĉĜĝĤĥĴĵŜŝŬŭ

Ĉu neĝas? This is the Esperanto for "Is it snowing?".

Re: Sonnet to a Renaissance Lady

In July 2020 I started a specialist magazine. For the body text I used Goudita SF, a Venetian style font that was bundled with the desktop publishing software, Serif PagePlus.

Re: Template question

Ah, I have managed to do it.

Make a copy of the 1 page Signatures template then change the code points to
