This is gobbledygook on my screen, and I can't make it anything else  
by changing the text encoding of the message. I take that to mean  
that you have not used a UTF-8 unicode font but pasted this text in  
from another text on the web or on your own computer and the font is  
not one that I have on my computer.

We have asked list-members to use the transliteration scheme set  
forth in our FAQ at http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/faq.html

Our FAQ also has a signature protocol of which you should be aware  
and which you should observe:

"Signatures: If your email address does not contain your real full  
name, please use a signature that provides at least your name.  
Signatures may also include your location, academic affiliation, or a  
web page. Signatures should not include comments that might be seen  
as provocative, sectarian, or political."
