[B-Greek] Viewing Greek text (or B-Greek) with links to Perseus

The Hopperizer recognizes both Beta Code and B-Greek transliteration schemes. 

Louis' transliteration of 1Tim 5:9 was given in Beta Code rather than B-Greek. As noted, the key (though not only) difference is the mapping of X and C.

Instead of converting 1 Tim 5:9 to B-Greek, an alternative is to simply change the Hopperizer's setting from B-Greek to Beta Code.

The bug with capitalization that Dr. Conrad discovered has [fingers crossed] been fixed.

P.S. Louis, thanks for the plug!
