Question for the Bib Studs

December 30, 2009

Does anyone know how to get the textual critical symbols for the texts that look so nice in Hebraica (true type font) to look somehow similar in a unicode font? Most of the ones I have found so far are pretty weak…

    Do you have Logos? I have the critical apparati (SESB) for both BHS and NA 27 and mine come out just fine when I copy and paste into a word processor. I can send a sample by email if you like (just email me). If you’re talking about getting them to show on a blog, I wouldn’t know.

    have you looked over at ‘tyndale tech’? they have a whole unicode font package.

      Thanks Jim. Tyndale has the Cardo font which has a lot of good symbols for textual symbols but I still find that its symbols for the major sources lacking.

      If anyone could point me towards some unicode symbols for the Masoretic, LXX, Syriac, Vulgate, and Targums that look like Hebraica I would be eternally grateful and have to write exceedingly nice things about them.

    I’ve been waiting patiently for you to publish the mother if all posts here and THIS us what you give me? A post about fonts and texts? Weak sauce man. Weak sauce.

      Don’t worry Jake… regular blogging to commence soon, including “the” post. I got distracted by work, but I am making a resolution to not let silly things like employment get in the way of blogging in the new year!
