Great_Brightstar added a comment to T75299: Indicators (protected icon, featured icon) are not shown in Minerva.

We can also make the MobileDetect extension works with indicator, if this feature is implamented, an editor would be allowed to determin whether an indicator is visible on mobile screen. If he doesn't want to do, he can use the <nomobile> tag surrounding the indicator, then it would be ignored in Minerva skin.

Great_Brightstar added a comment to T27611: Support optimized WebP thumbnails as alternative to JPEG, PNG.

I've checked briefly ~100000 images requests on an esams Varnish server, with the current threshold only 0.035% of image responses are image/webp.

Our efforts to deploy WebP happen to be very timely, as I've just learned that Edge supports it as of last month, and Firefox 65 has just added support as well, with its general release scheduled on January 29.

Great_Brightstar added a comment to T152739: Send WebP images when possible.

Since Firefox 65 released, all major web browsers except Safari got support for WebP format, so it's reasonable to provide WebP images directly to them. We can try to detect the request header firstly while the server received the request, then we decide weather sending WebP images to the client.

Great_Brightstar added a comment to T208901: TemplateStyles breaks a paragraph if a file is inserted inline.

TemplateStyles will not be doing that sort of thing, as that would increase time to rendering of the above-the-fold content and T155813 concluded that we specifically don't want to do that.

Great_Brightstar added a comment to T208901: TemplateStyles breaks a paragraph if a file is inserted inline.

I found a workaround for this. you can make use of <indicator> tag surrounding <templatestyles> tag to inject the TemplateStyles. In English Wikisource I used the following source codes to do, you can get it in this commit:

<indicator name="greek-text"><templatestyles src="Greek/fonts.css" /></indicator>

With this indicator the TemplateStyles loaded only once, but not affect any paragraphs. It would be nice if TemplateStyles extension can make the similar implamentation.

Great_Brightstar added a comment to T65236: Chinese text in SVG files misplaced and clustered.

@Aklapper : Does Inkscape use librsvg?

Uh! librsvg is not listed as a dependency of inkscape. I never realized that! Thanks a lot!
Alright, so with librsvg2-2.44.8-1 (that is a newer version which is NOT yet on Wikimedia servers, see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T193352 ):

For non-Chinese speakers, any chance to explain / show how the image should look in order to not be problematic?

The following image is also problematic in the Commons:

Later I saw GIMP repositery closed a bug recently for similar problem
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/2518
In this bug, an user reported WenQuanYi Zen Hei font makes Chinese characters overlapped into one piece if he converted to vertical text layout, then the developer pointed that this font has broken vertical metrics, so they closed it. If we are using this font too, I suggest we should replace it by other approciate font such as Source Han Sans.

I know what's wrong to me. Recently improves in Firefox make the usage of this HTML class restricted, so I sent a request in their talk page and the template now works! Thanks for everyone.

I got these fonts from Beth Mardutho website

What does that mean? http://www.bethmardutho.org/images/fonts/melthofonts-1.21.zip linked from http://www.bethmardutho.org/index.php/resources/fonts.html ? Or somewhere / something else? This is important because of font licenses Which needs clarification here.
