    And that has ALWAYS been true. Printing Ge'ez with red dots or any
    rubricized text would have been a technical challenge from lead type
    to linotype.

    Today, we have sophisticated ways of introducing coloured
    illustrations in didactic materials, and PDF can provide published
    material in any format the creator likes.
