1) Which forum is appropriate for the exchange of files?

2) Is it intended that individuals know enough HTML to switch to foreign language fonts?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I had no problem pasting Greek and Hebrew in a Quick Reply box and changing font sizes as below:

אֱלֹהִ֔ים  Hebrew

ἀποθνῄσκω Greek

--> The generated HTML shows that it picks up the font family and language from the source, but the Greek word is "spelt" out in HTML i.e. ἀποθνῄσκ&omega

So it might be difficult to *write* directly in a foreign language, but easy enough to *paste* foreign language text.

Any forum. Files uploaded via "Insert Media" are stored on the Community Logos server and download links are created for HTML, ZIP and PDF. Other media (picture, sound, video) is "inserted" into the text box. Any "disallowed" file types can be stored in a zip file. Just experiment using the"More" button to Edit your effort!

That is likely to be the problem since I was attempting to type in the Greek.  Thanks for checking.
