Help for Melinda

Nov-21-2000 at 11:03 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

Shlama l'Kulkhon,

I was reading a comment left by Melinda on the Guestbook, and was wondering if anyone had a similiar problem they may have resolved.

She has downloaded and installed the Estrangela font, but her printer will not print it properly.

Any Mac users out there with any tips on this, or that have experienced this same problem? I don't know the first thing about that platform .

Shlama w'Burkate,

Hello Melinda and all Mac users,

I'm the guy who converted the Estrangela font to Macintosh. If Melinda is reading this and can give me some details about her Mac, such as model, system version, printer, etc.. I might be able to help.

First, does "not being able to print" mean that you can see the font on screen in your web browser and Acrobat Reader? If so, that narrows the problem down to the printer driver, printer, and available memory.

Second, which of the files are you trying to print, the pdf documents or the html version of the grammar? The pdf documents don't require the seperate TrueType font.

I have an Epson Stylus printer and because of a conflict with Netscape Communicator 4.x and the Epson driver, I have to set the printout resolution in the Netscape Page Setup dialog box to 400% to get a 100% printout

I also have a very old Apple laser printer and have found that there is an incompatibility in Adobe's Acrobat Reader that prevents it from printing to old postscript level 1 printers.

Here are some general tips concerning the TrueType font.

1. You are probably better off using System 7.5 or later.
2. Netscape and Internet Explorer 4.x or later may be necessary to use the font. (I have only tested it on Netscape Communicator 4.75)
3. I have found MacZip works best when you drag and drop the zip archive onto it to decompress it.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
