[B-Greek] Greek fonts with macron

The following fonts on my system (Mac OS 10.2.8 - ancient, I know)
include Greek vowels with precombined macrons:
Alphabetum (including the free demo version, which is what I have)
Gentium and Gentium Alt
New Athena Unicode
A few came with the OS, but most I've downloaded over the years as
(at least at the time) freeware, and I think most of those will work
on Windows machines too. I suggest you visit:
or Google the font names to find current sources for them.
Personally, I like Aristarcoj and Porson for italic-y fonts and
Alkaios and Gentium Alt for unslanted ones.
P.S. The adventurous might also consider LaTeX:
which lets you add diacritics like macrons (as does Unicode in
standard text editors/word processors, as found in the "Combining
Diacritical Marks" block). J.
