MOBI format concern

Hello,

I have recovered a book from the lost city of Atlantis, in digital format. I am concerned that my Kindle will not be able to display the characters of this old language.

Can someone please confirm for me that Kindle supports Atlantean? This is very important.

Thank you kindly.

Yup.

Kindle works with the Mobi format, but it can also unlock and uncode hidden secrets in Atlantean and Sumerian. There are some problems with certain dialects and slang terms used in Gaelic, but who the hell speaks Gaelic now, anyway...

It is a tribute to the great mind of Jeff Bezos that this feature was included. As for the text, reech, I will see that you are properly exalted in the events to follow.

Thank you kindly.

As has been noted many times - if people did their homework, research, they would know that the format is or is not supported. Remember though, if using this in Atlantis' locale, use, at least, a ziplock baggie.

FYI -- If you send it through Calibre (with plugins!), Atlantean can be converted to Gaelic without the formatting errors.... though you may anger the Druid Gods. I can't provide a link, but if you want Gaelic you probably want a drink instead anyway!!

It's the harsh constanants I can't stand. Sounds like I'm about to cough up a lung everytime I speak.

You'll probably find the book is protected by a DRM scheme which is no longer supported. A decryption solution is almost certainly available, but can't be discussed in these forums. However, GIYF (Google Is Your Friend).

It supports Klingon? This is a good day to read.
