Fonts

You can choose the size and boldness of the font that you want Universalis to use.  In addition, you can choose whether Universalis should display italic text using a synthesized italic font, or whether you prefer it to be displayed in bold. The synthesized font isn't very readable on old-style displays like the one in the picture, but modern higher-density displays manage it quite well.

Calendars

This page lets you choose which local calendar you want Universalis to use. You can also set the following options:

Invitatory Psalm: You can decide whether you want the same Invitatory Psalm every day, or whether you want the psalm to change every day, going through the four permitted options, as the Universalis web site does.

Translations: For the Liturgy of the Hours, you can choose whether to use the Grail translation of the psalms or the translation that is used on the Universalis web site. (The scripture readings are always in the Jerusalem Bible version).

Translations: For the readings at Mass, you can choose whether to use the Jerusalem Bible and the Grail psalms (which are used in the UK and many other parts of the world) or the New American Bible scripture readings and psalms. The New American Bible option is only available if you select one of the United States liturgical calendars.
