Vocalized and cantillated Hebrew is much more difficult to read at smaller font sizes. I created a special "heb" tag, which uses the SBL font (the most readable, IMO) at a higher font size. However, members tend not to use it, because it's an extra step. :-(

Jonathan, you can define any arbitrary tag (with square brackets) in the admin panel. Click on the posting tab. PM or email me if you'd like to see how I did the heb tag. (It comes up, BTW, on the editor toolbar after it's defined.)
Yes, I know how to do it, and I have defined a few tags (for indentation, youtube, and a few other things). But nobody seems to use them.

Where did you define the default greek font and size, Jonathan?
In common.css, in the prosilver theme. I included the Google web fonts in overall_header.html. I can show you how offline, if you like. Incidentally, there is a phpBB 3.2 now.

Where/what is this indentation button of which you speak?! :o :shock:

Is there one without a bullet? :oops:

/** Test **/
Indent Test

@Wes:
Type the following for indenting:

Code: Select all

[indent]Insert indented text here[/indent]

Most of the extra BBCode on the forum isn't listed, nor, as Wes has seen, has a button for it in the editor :)

Thank you, S. Walch! Now I can have all the paragraphs I want. I have noticed that I
will have to find the best place to put the [/indent] because the end of the line in the submission box doesn't exactly match the end of the line in the post preview. I will probably dig around on the internet and see what other gems I can find hidden in the BBCode that I might find useful.
Thanks again!

I think the indent tag is one I created way back to make it easier to show an overview of the syntax using a little whitespace:

καὶ
λέγει
αὐτοῖς
Ἀντλήσατε
νῦν
καὶ
φέρετε
τῷ ἀρχιτρικλίνῳ.

Whatever it was intended for, I don't mind to repurpose it. But I'll be sure to "pay it extra." :lol:
