This page is a mess

For reasons I am not sure of this page has escaped the big cull and clear out from the begin of this year. Much of the info here is entirely irrelevant for anyone. Unless there is a clear rationale given to entries here, maybe we should cull or at least seriously shorten it.

Useful info is not chatty, not specific to any particular system (or conversely has a specific and serious impact on a particular system which needs possibly mitigation), has impact on module making or other core work. Any fonts listed here need to be freely licensed unless there is a specific and named reason for not using a freely licensed font. refdoc:talk 09:32, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Code2000

It should be noted that http://www.code2000.net/ doesn't exist anymore and it may have been GPL'd? Last time I looked around (August 2011?) that seemed to be the case, meaning it may become a first choice for many people? It is listed at http://sourceforge.net/projects/code2000/ --Niccarter 18:57, 27 October 2011 (MDT)

Well then - we should just update the link in the main page. btw. I just installed it from sourceforge, and it displays Burmese OK. David Haslam 02:08, 28 October 2011 (MDT)
Done. David Haslam 02:18, 28 October 2011 (MDT)
Code2000 displays the BurJudson module better than Padauk, at least in Xiphos. David Haslam 04:19, 10 December 2011 (MST)

Karen fonts

The fonts available at the Karen Teacher Working Group include some non-Unicode legacy fonts. I have not yet determined whether any of the fonts are Unicode. David Haslam 04:21, 10 December 2011 (MST)

Module specific fonts for And Bible

I've asked Martin for some further details on how module specific fonts are installed by And Bible, and also how to add/configure a font to use with a manually added module. David Haslam 05:35, 26 October 2012 (MDT)

Hindi

I have just tried using the Annapurna SIL font in Xiphos (Windows) as the font for the HinERV module. This was successful. David Haslam 10:26, 2 February 2013 (MST)
