Just a Test

I just want to see what others see when I do this.

΄Έν α̉ρχη̃ η̉ν ο̃̉ λόγος, καὶ ο̉ λόγος η̉ν πρὸς τὸν θεόν, καὶ θεὸς η̃ν ο̃̉ λόγος.

John 1: 1 in Koine Greek

בְּרָאשִׁית בָּרַא אֱלהִים אֶת־הָשָׁמַיִם וְאֶת־הָאָרֶץ׃

(Genesis 1: 1 in Hebrew)

One of the problems I ran into in What HE Said was the inability to use Greek and Hebrew fonts. Hopefully I have it licked. I originally attempted to write using Greek and Hebrew font sets but couldn't get them to transfer to Blogspot properly. Using the Character Map is much easier but still needs some work. The solution dawned on me while I was commenting about hidden icons at Carol's Blog.

I still need some practice with the accent and breath marks in the Greek fonts and the fact that Hebrew is read and written backwards (from our point of view) creates some problems that I need to learn to work with better as well.

Is your blog going international?

Not really.

I started a blog called What HE Said where I intended to a more scholarly approach to Bible Study but the inability to use Greek and Hebrew fonts put a barrier in front of me. That barrier appears to be licked.

Not bad, except for the little squares. You'll get it.
