Dear Jeff,

I have Windows 98 OS, but I have also Arial Unicode MS; that's in addition to
the LOGOS Bible Software Fonts.

En Xristwi,

Rev. Bryant J. Williams III

Well, that's the kicker. Any Unicode font should be able to see virtually all of
the Greek characters. But I have had trouble myself when dealing with Greek
text, either online or in my own research papers. I'm attaching a Word document
that I'm afraid only Bryant will be able to see since old B-Greek doesn't let
attachments through (I will try to post it on the forum if it's legal to do so).
It's a list of different fonts that I have on my computer that display the
characters to my satisfaction. Also, most newer versions of Windows will replace
a the font of a certain character with another font (usually Tahoma) if that
character is not included in that font. That's why on the Sinaiticus paragraph
(which is an Uncial font), many of the characters are in Tahoma instead of
Sinaiticus. If you are seeing little boxes instead, it's probably an indication
that you do not have either Tahoma or Arial Unicode MS installed. I know nothing
about what Unicode fonts come with Macs.

Dear Carl,

[Carl said]
Of course, over at the new site (http://ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/index.php),
where all sorts of things are happening, BG Transliteration is no longer needed;
we use Unicode there.

[Bryant asks]
Which Unicode font is being used? I have tried to use several different ones and
still seeing the little "rectangular" boxes on some of the letters.
