Is there a way of rendering (selected) English text in a Roman Font rather than Seanchló? I see options to change font size & colo(u)r but not face. I find English in Seanchló irritating!

[font face=“Roman”]I wonder does this work?[/font]

Also, the preview doesn’t! It just shows raw text, including format tags.

It doesn’t work here, what you wrote there was all in Clo Gaelach.

It depends on whether you have the font installed, WFM. Do you see other messages in seanchló?

I see the dots over the letters for “dubhthach”, but I don’t see anything in Seanachló  red face

Ní hansa.
Tá na litreaċa buailte ann i Unicode. Má ċuirtear isteaċ iad, feicfiḋ tú iad.

Ach ċun an cló a ḟeiceáil, ní mór duit leiṫheidí Bunċló a ḃéiṫ ar do ríoṁaire.

I agree that English in seanchló looks horrible but I wonder if explicitly marking up a piece of text to appear in a particular style is the way to go. It’s not very ‘CSSey’. It might be better to provide something like an ‘[english]’ tag to denote that a word or phrase is English. This would be converted into HTML markup like this:

Chuaigh sé go dtí <span lang="en">Brown Thomas</spaninné agus cheannaigh sé culaith nua

This in turn would be picked up by a bit of CSS like this (which says that any spans of English text within a post should be presented in Tahoma):

div.post span[lang|=en]
{
    font
-familyTahoma;

Cinnte, bheadh sin níos stuama.

Bhíodh tag ar an seana fóram chun giota a chuir sa chló gaelach. Rud mar sin a bhí á shantú agam. Is cuma liom conas a chuirtear i bhfeidhm é!

I’ll have to admit that I look forward to seeing the Daltaí forums use ordinary roman script again.  I find the present situation unappealing.

Done.

As soon as I have time, I’ll add Daithí‘s webfont fix and update our stylesheet.

Well, fair play dhuit, a Chaoimhín, go raiibh maith agat.  May I make another small suggestion?  Would you consider removing the background shade from the message panel.  That would mean that the word’s “Bullaí fir!” in Aonghus’s message above would appear on a white background just as his name and the date and time posted does.  I appreciate that is just a matter of taste and I being colour-blind am no judge….. 

In case we have all forgotten may I say I—and others I am sure—appreciate your work in keeping these Forums going.  I know it takes time and skill and sometimes patience but I think Daltaí is one of the best of them because of its obviously serious intent.  Thanks to you and the others who take responsibility for it.
