Pāḷi words require special accents for correct spelling. Verdana only supports the macrons (ā ī ū) needed for long vowels. This site uses the Verajja font, which contains all of the Latin Extended Additional glyphs required for Pāḷi and Sanskrit.
The font is embedded in the site so there is no need to download and install it. Your browser will do that automatically.

Vivaldi is a new browser created by former Opera CEO Jon von Tetzchner. It is still in development, but the plan is to build a replacement for the old Opera with built-in email etc. It is already faster and more reliable than old Opera for browsing, but not quite as customisable yet. It is now my default browser.
Opera 12.17 took more than 10 years to become the powerful tool that it still is, and Vivaldi is still in its early stages of development. Nevertheless, it does most that a browser should. More features are added every month, if not every week.
