New PDFs

I noticed today that the count of available texts suddenly jumped up by four (yay, Jeff!), but the titles of the new texts were not listed in the new title list. So, does anybody know which ones are new?

Unicode greek input tool

Hoping somebody post a better tool for writing greek in unicode, ...

http://users.ox.ac.uk/~tayl0010/letters ... etpos2.htm

The input method here is similar to betacode. So I thought it would be easy for textkit members. I was looking for unicode tools to use truetype unicode fonts. :

Input unicode greek text in the tool
--> Copy & paste into an editor that supports unicode
--> change to a truetype unicode font ...

about this thread:
http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-foru ... php?t=1077

I'll have to skip the replies(especially of those advanced members like chad) at first and try my own. :? :(

Correct or almost correct answers come too early. :(

Native languages?

I must first apologize for one of the previous topics; I kind of destroyed the harmony of Textkit. I’m still new to this whole forum thing; this is the first I have joined after all. So once again, I’m sorry. Well, that said, let’s continue.

We seem to have many people from all around so I have some simple questions: what is your native language? How many languages do you know? What does English sound ...

Introduction and announcement of a Mounce study group

First, I'd like to briefly introduce myself. I've been trying to work my way through Mounce. I love this textbook. If anybody ever said you can't write a combination devotional/language textbook, I think Mounce has proven them wrong (just as Wayne Grudem has shown you can produce a devotional systematic theology).

In January 2003 I started a free on-line study group doing Mounce. Unfortunately, due to dropoff in attendance as well as my own job ...

Composition Books - thumbs up or thumbs down

I thought I would start off a new thread to hopefully get minds back onto more sutiable 'open board' discussions...

Some of the details have yet to be fleshed out, but I have posted some *preliminary* info on some web pages:
