Viewing Georgian fonts[edit]

How do I view these characters in firefox? I see question marks for the Georgian characters.

View->Character Encoding->Unicode (UTF-8) should do it --NJR_ZA 14:08, 26 March 2007 (EDT)
Not always, there are severe bugs with foreign character display in firefox, this could REALLY use pictures of the characters, something like (Georgian chars for B,O,O) ([[Image:GeorgB.svg]][[Image:GeorgO.svg]][[Image:GeorgO.svg]]). This wouldn't require different images for different phrases and would allow any construction. +Hexagon1 (t) 03:41, 8 January 2008 (EST)
I'm confused, are you proposing we replace every instance of a Georgian character on this page with a link to an image file? That would take forever to load and would make it difficult to edit for anyone correcting spelling or phrase syntax. Or are you suggesting we just do that for the alphabet list? --Peter Talk 03:51, 8 January 2008 (EST)
List only. +Hexagon1 (t) 01:57, 9 March 2008 (EST)

Word stress[edit]

I don't think it's a good idea to put emphases on syllables at all in this pronunciation guide (that is, capitalized syllables in the transliterated pronunciation guide). Linguists aren't totally settled on whether there is no stress in Georgian, or whether there is faint stress on the third to last syllable of multi-syllabic words. But either way, we don't need stressed syllables in the pronunciation guide, and the top of the article explains this. --Peter Talk 22:46, 1 February 2009 (EST)

Ok, I was browsing the DLI language guides a few weeks ago and added to some of the WT language guides. I simply used the stress that was used in the Georgian guide. AHeneen 22:58, 1 February 2009 (EST)

Formality[edit]

A well meaning contributor a while back removed the polite versions of hello, thank you, etc. I think it's pretty important to keep both around, as travelers might use a phrasebook for formalities with business partners, just as much as a backpacker might use it to buy fruit in the market. --Peter Talk 17:37, 22 August 2010 (EDT)
