And this is why it should not be possible to use these techniques in contextualized or cursive texts with modern days fonts (or cursors apparently for Tamil split vowels whose colour one would want to change to highlight them by first selecting them which is often not possible)? The only case where I agree this does not make sense is in the case of ligature where the constituents may not be recognizable and therefore it would make no sense to ask to be able the colour differently its individual parts.Ahmad Gharbeia <gharbeia at gmail dot com> wrote:Yes, all the cases described as justifications for the need for glyph colouring within normal typesetting. This is how subjects like grammar, morphology, orthography, gender endings, plural types, etc. were taught to us as children.Bold, italics, underlining, changes in font size and style, etc. are all used for pedagogical and other communicative purposes. But they are not plain text either.
