Re: SV: [Pali] Unicode version of Tipitaka site by VRI
- Dear friends,
Discussing about Pali fonts, I'd like to get some advices from anybody
who expert in using vri fonts.
I've installed a version III Chattha Sanghayana tipitaka program in my
computer with Windows XP. It run properly in roman script (there is
still a problem when the language is changed into Thai). But after i
copied 7 vri fonts and added to windows' fonts directory, The Chattha
SAnghayana program cannot display any fonts as usual while opening it.
The question is how can I get 7 vri fonts without facing such problem?
And the second one is how can Chattha Sanghayana run in Windows XP
display Thai script?
