The 40 HTML files used here for the LaneLexicon.htm menus were prepared by Dr. Thomas F. McDaniel, Professor Emeritus,
Palmer Theological Seminary , which is the Seminary of Eastern University in St. Davids, Pennsylvania.

Three different Arabic fonts have been used in creating the menus in order to circumvent the conflicts with the characrter keys [ { }< > ; ^ / ] used in the HTML coding as well as having various letter assignments in different Arabic fonts.


Noted in each menu of the Arabic lexemes (ALIF to YA) is a reminder to copy and install on your ccomputer the Arabic.ttf,  Farsi.ttf,  and Karbala.ttf  fonts so that the Arabic words in all of the menus appear correctly. It is recommended that you copy and install these four fonts NOW.
