Why Ananda Bazar Patrika (a well known Bengali newspaper) and other Bengali newspaper (ajkal, Bartoman, protidin) use bitstream in website?



Ananda Bazar Patrika (www.anandabazar.com)

Ajkal (www.aajkaal.net)

Bartoman(www.bartamanpatrika.com)

Protidin (www.sangbadpratidin.net)

Can anyone explain what the advantage and disadvantage of bitstream dynamic font is?

In Unicode there are lots of advantages as I know. What is the technology use for create Bengali bitstream dynamic fonted website? Means that they type the whole newspaper or any other process the do.[url="java script:emoticon("][/url]

Don't know Pal,

Probably because in that way readers can save but can't read offline pages, in that way publishers can control their content.

(Just my 2 cents, I can be wrong! biggrin.gif )

@concerned user: no, that is not any reason.

Reasons:

1. If the sites used unicode many people would not be able to view the text. But that is a very lame reason I tell you. If it was 4-5 years ago, it would have made sense. People who are using internet and going to read news online are tech-savvy enough. A few instructions for 2000/xp users will be enough (i dont see 98 anywhere these days).

2. They are ignorant. They don't know unicode is the universal way to display bengali text. BBC Bengali (bbc.co.uk/bengali), Wikipedia (bn.wikipedia.org) are with times and use unicode on their sites.

3. They are lazy. Even if they understand that bitstream (that requires an installation) is cumbersome and unicode is the standard, they are lazy to shift. Lazy to convert their archive to unicode and lazy to get rid of their current software setup.

4. They are not serious. They are not taking the internet seriously. They are in no mood to spare a thought for website upgradation.

It is a pity that our leading newspapers are not using Unicode. But in the long run they will have to make the switch.

Disadvantages

1. afaik only Windows supported, not Linux or Mac.
2. only internet explorer supported. not firefox or opera. (firefox and opera are said to be the browsers of choice of the geeks)
3. an installation is required by the user
4. obsolete technology
5. the text is useless. u cant copy it to paste it somewhere else.
6. text not searchable!

Advantage

1. for windows 98 users, this is a good way to see bengali text on web. (microsoft has phased out support for 98 long ago thereby sending it in museum)

বাংলায় ফিরে এলাম। উত্তর গুলো পেয়ে খুব ভালো লাগলো।ইংরাজিতে লেখার জন্য খুবই দুঃক্ষিত, কেউ কি বলতে পারবেন বিটস্ট্রিমে bash.gif প্রযুক্তিগত সুবিধা কি?? দৈনিক গুলি কিভাবে সাইট তৈরি করে? মানে পুরোটা টাইপ করে? নাকী অন্য কিছু ভাবে তৈরি করে?

@AllExclusive: No one here is asking how to view the Anandabazar website. The feasibility of Bitstream is the talking point.
