Color-coded languages in transcripts!

Color-coded languages in transcripts! published on No Comments on Color-coded languages in transcripts!

I’m taking the plunge and color-coding the languages in the comic transcripts. Not for every strip ETA, a year and a half later: now for every strip! Including all Ceannis natives speaking Ceannic, and all Sønheim natives speaking Sønska.

(Other languages may be added as needed.)

Read an updated transcript to see the colors in action!

If these don’t work for you for some reason — colorblindness, a bad monitor, whatever — but you’re running Firefox or Chrome, you can customize the appearance on your end. Add Stylish for Firefox or Stylish for Chrome to your browser, and create a new style with the following text:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("leifandthorn.com") {
.ceannic {
color: #496F2B;
}

.sonska {
color: #3B2775;
}

}

Then modify however you like. Overwrite the colors, change the font, anything else CSS can do.

(In Ceannic, the languages are called “Ceannic” and “Sonheic”. In Sønska, they’re “Sønska” and “Ceanska”.)
