Description billinghurst 2014-08-17 08:50:40 UTC
Hi Runa and team,

We talked briefly at WM2014 about since the move from webfonts to the new font presentation scheme, that there is no longer a [[w:en:blackletter]] equivalent to [ UnifrakturMaguntia]. English Wikisource was using it in [[s:en:Template:Blackletter]].

You can see an example of its expected presentation at [[s:en:Page:The Army and Navy Hymnal.djvu/12]]

Thanks for whatever you can do to remedy this situation.

The font already exists in the ULS font repo[1]. A patch should be coming in shortly to fix this. Thanks for filing the bug.

Comment 2 billinghurst 2014-08-19 23:48:50 UTC
Following conversation with WMF's Internationalization & Localization team, I am altering this request to be more holistic by "Re-enablement of webfonts for English Wikisource" rather than focusing on solely the fraktur type fonts, which was the result of heWS's request referred to in #comment 1

Feel free to revert to smaller approach if that is your preference after internal conversation.

Webfont should be enabled in English Wikisource with recent merge.
