Notes from the editor
Use of the symbol font
We have used the symbol font in several of the articles in this
edition of the Electronic Journal of Analytic Philosophy.
This has allowed us to display formulas using Greek letters and
mathematical characters. However, this font is not supported by
several of the existing browser configurations. We apologize to
those using browsers that do not support the font, and hope that
future versions of your chosen platform will incorporate it.
The decision to use the font was based upon the paucity of
alternatives. We can present logical formulas as images, for
example, but then there is no way to insert those same formulas
into a paragraph without confusing the appearance of the
paragraph itself, usually making the formula appear as an
indented quote. Similarly, we could translate the formulas over
into some ASCII formula that is defined as equivalent (as we have
done in the past), but this is difficult to read, and is
deceptive when the formula is quoted from a text.
Disruption of service
I apologize for the downtown that ejap experienced for several
weeks in July. The server was being updated, and some problems
New ejap forthcoming
After editing The Electronic Journal of Analytic Philosophy
since its inception in 1993, I am about to step down as Editor in
Chief. I will remain a board member and the publisher of ejap, but
a new Editor in Chief will be taking over. This site will remain
active (although probably as a mirror site). An exciting launch of
the new, and improved, ejap can be expected in 2001.
