#3 Issue – MW Source Markup Gone

All of http://www.sanskrit-lexicon.uni-koeln.de/monier/mwauthorities/mwauth_SktDevaUnicode.html#record_AV_ is gone. If I’m translating ayurvedic texts I would want to have “AV.” meanings above all. Linking them to MW entries would be not easy because of homonyms.

Ulrich Stiehl’s Font Forgery

Ulrich Stiehl’s Font Forgery

Eight years have passed since Ulrich published my font as his, but still I wanted clear a few misunderstandings. As the email mail.ru which I used for Sanskrit correspondence until gmail.com is now, I can not quote the text or dates, but it all was until 2005. After it Ulrich never replied. He was in contact with a colleague of mine from Minsk, Mihas, but now these days are over as well.

In 2005 a .pdf was sent as a reply to my email from The Type Museum. Based on it I OCRed the text and sent it to colleagues. I was surprised to find it later at sanskritweb.net/itrans/s99fonts.pdf same year. Ulrich, haven written lots of interesting articles about font forgery, released a not yet ready font for public on his website, although he knew from our prior email exchange that I was involved and not only involved – the idea, scanning, drawing, improving was done in Moscow.
