I'll try some simple sentences:

Mary and John are a happy couple.

I eat an apple.

Is there something I don't understand? I can read post made by Korov'ev in D'ni but I can't write in D'ni myself.

Weird… I can read your D'ni writings on both Safari and Firefox (Mac OSX Maverick)

It’s not a translator; it displays text in D’ni script, written using the RAWA transliteration, but you actually have to write in D’ni :wink:
For example, the text in OHB’s first post looks like this:
Code:
[dni].Sora b'Sem .Selem hevtE Dn'E[/dni]


.mårE ga jon KenEt erTcouple happy
.rEs erTapple

.Sora b'Sem .Selem hevtE Dn'E
Shorah b'shem 'tee
Khahpo rehzuhnuh rildolgehlehnij gahth
Chehv ah'shem

I see D'ni everywhere on the internet, where there is D'ni to be seen, I see it on your page too, OHB, but I don't see it here on the forums yet ... Win7, FF 32.0.1 ... :D

Are you sure?

Because YES on IE I can't see my writing in D'ni because I wrote them in English...but using the browser preferred by OHB (which I assume is Chrome...)

see what I've got (and Grover aka Area51 here is right about it):

That’s right, the [ dni] tag simply change the font used to display the text. Apparently, at times, some browsers don’t display the text correctly and revert to the standard font.

[Reveal] Spoiler: Terminological Appendix
This:

Mary and John are a happy couple.
I eat an apple.


is just English written using a D’ni font. It’s often called D’ninglish. This:

.mårE ga jon KenEt erTcouple happy
.rEs erTapple

is the translation in D’ni language proper, typed in D’ni script. I left “couple”, “happy” and “apple” in English (in Roman script) because we don’t have the D’ni equivalents of those words.
In fact, there are many basic words that we don’t have; the good news is you can coin them :wink:

@Korov'ev
Oh I see...

So it's more a transliteration of English language from Latin to D'ni Alphabet that I did here. 8)

That's a cool feature :)

Note D'ni fonts are currently not displaying when at http://www.mystonline.com/forums due to a server issue @ Cyan. I'm messaging the appropriate people. (Works if you're at http://mystonline.com/forums (without the www))

Thank you, OHB!!! Now I see it too ... Today I've noticed korovev's D'ni signature, and so I just came here to see if anything has changed already and I found that I still couldn't see written D'ni, until I saw your post here, and without that www it really works and it looks all so beautiful, wow, thank you ... :D

I'm tempted to go through the entire member list for people who've put D'ni in their sig, and help them correct all instances of D'ninglish where possible.
