[sword-devel] Unicode, Unicode, Unicode
Thu, 16 Aug 2001 19:23:49 -0700
You might want to try to download a that is newer build available at:
ct.zip There were a couple of builds that either didn't support the Font=
tag and another that applied that tag to all the following modules in that
group. Also with the newer builds you can now select the font (and colors)
you want manually. Using the custom font selector will require that you
remove that Font= tag from your conf file so that the custom font is used.
Of course using the Font= tag will achieve the same results it is just a bit
more tedious to do so. Hope this helps
