>>I thought I might like to translate the Universal Declaration on Human
Rights into Senyecan (at least the preamble). I went looking for it online and discovered a site that might be of interest to the group. The site has the declaration in over 200 languages ("from Abkaz to Zulu"), written in their proper script. If someone wanted to see a substantial amount of a language, especially in a non-Latin script, this would be a good site for that.<< Ah yes, I love that site. When I was a member of the Amnesty International club at my high school, I used that site a lot when coming up with flyer designs to promote the club. They didn't draw many members, but I had fun making them. :) Anyway, that's an interesting tranlation exercise. I shall have to try it sometime.
>>Incidentally, I tried to look at the Navaho example, but a note said
I needed to download the Navaho font. I did this but still couldn't view the text properly. What am I doing wrong? Charlie<< I installed it and then refreshed the page, and it worked okay for me. Sorry if this is obvious, but remember that you do need to install the font in your Fonts folder (it's in the Control Panel). Failing that, I don't know. ===== The Aquamarine Demon "There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge." - Bertrand Russell __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
