    Not trying to be funny when I say that I wish Rozanna Spokesman would publish in .html instead of printing stories as giant image files. It is not that hard.

    Your are sharp as a tack today and have me chuckling. That would really boost our traffic if Rozanna did that. It would also keep Rozanna out of hot water... where sometimes it comes to a boil.

    Aman could do it.

    The reason why ... my theory anyway ...that jpeg files are used has to do with the Gurmukhi fonts. They would not pose a problem for many people if pages were typed/written in Unicode. But for others, they might not know how to turn Unicode on. That means they would be looking at gibberish fonts with no way to know the problem was correctable. So I think Rozanna and many other sites that publish in Punjabi just take a picture of each typed page, and the upload the image file. Then everyone is looking at the same thing. I don't know if I am correct...just a guess.

    Or maybe they scan. They must be using something to type it on a page maker software like word. Type setting it before printing.

    I know Sikhi to the max is written in normal text and formatted in Punjabi using fonts. Does SPN support that?

    One thing is for sure, Rozanna has poor SEO..

    Heh Heh!

    Yes, Siki to the Max is written using one Gurbani Web Thick only, and is not readable unless a person downloads the font to his/her fontbook.

    Aman is the genius for enhancing SEO, and could help Rozanna with that too.

    SPN supports a lot of fonts. Problems can pop up for individual members when a font is not in their fontbook and the browser he/she is using is unhappy with particular fonts on particular pages. That is on the reader's side, not SPN.

    I am pretty certain that SPN supports Gurbani Web Thick; but right now I cannot see the link where you go to download fonts. Most of my fonts I did get from SPN.

    All others who use HTMl have these problems..
    1. Font SATLUJ has to be downlaoded and installed...BUT certain BROWSWERS dont support certain fonts...SATLUJ which is univwersally used by all Punjabi Mainstream newspapers and online web sites..is gibberish in Firefox..works off on in Googles Chrome..works well ONLy in IE...

    2. IMAGES...dont need fonts..no need to download install anything..any one and everyone can SEE the Image straight away..thats the good part..japposatnamwaheguru:

    Sayedd Prithipal Singh's story was written by Bhai Harbans Lal few months back somewhere. During his Islamic Education in Mecca, he came across writings of Guru Nanak. He became Prithipal Singh from a Sayedd Muslim in first half of last century.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
