I found a nice font... it's Vietnamese, but still displays the Pali very well. Very easy to read. The name is "Hoang Yen", you can download it (along with a few different fonts). There is another set , it's very basic (Times Roman and Arial), but still pretty good.

They seem to show up only in Firefox, not Google Chrome. :thinking: Chrome apparently doesn't let you change the fonts, even though it has that option in the menu.

I'm curious which fonts do you guys use? One thing that bugs me is how in some fonts, certain letters are bigger than others. These fonts don't have that problem.

I was copying and pasting for the longest time, until fortunately some here pointed out how the 'pasting' was changing the diacritics to something else completely wrong. :tongue:

Then I downloaded Pali unicode. Now I have another desktop so I need to download it again to my new computer.

Hoang Yen is a fancy font, by the way. I wouldn't use it for the forums. It makes DPR very nice to use, and also makes the Pali much easier for me to read, for some reason.

I went ahead and googled for "Pali unicode", and found this - "". It seems better than the one I gave above (VU Times). It's more consistent. I'm using it for the forums right now, and everything seems good. I tried it in DPR, I still prefer Hoang Yen.

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -

Just a note that the Abhidhammattha Sangaha is now included in the DPR, and we're at our first Beta release :twothumbsup:

Just another update, now the DPR can export html files from sections or even groups of sections, and can analyze Pali text from a webpage as well.

Please accept my deeply felt thanks for this software! During my work translating the Majjhima Nikaya into Norwegian, I mainly use this DPR text now, although I still keep my Bangkok edition of the Pali Tipitaka open at my desk for comparison.

I have one question. Maybe I have not explored the software enough, but I have not yet found a way of keeping three windows open: 1. the Tipitaka, 2. the commentary text, linked to the relevant paragraph in the Tipitaka, and 3. the dictionary. Is this possible?

May I note one thing about the use of C#: it's not neccesarily a windows only application. You can use mono to be cross-platform: http://mono-framework.com/Main_Page

If anyone needs help with C#, Javascript or HTML: I'm a professional C# developer and have also extensive experience with Javascript (including jquery) and HTML. I might contribute to that codeplex project if so desired. :)

I decided to rewrite my windows-only reader application http://palitextreader.codeplex.com to java platform.
Here is an early alpha version:
http://code.google.com/p/jpalireader/

It is going to be similar in most aspects to the previous version, with the following new features:
- cross-platform (100% java). should run on any platform with java support.
- two horizontal panes to open the books in. You can choose the pane in the "open book" dialog. move the divider to set pane sizes. very useful to compare passages.
- multi-language support. currently, it supports english and russian user interface. language is detected from the operating system settings.

This is an alpha version recommended for experienced computer users only. Not all features are there yet, but the most important are already implemented.
I have tested it on Windows and Linux. I want to know if it runs on MacOS and Android.
