Okay, so I tried posting it on the forum, but apparently you have to have special permission to post attachments. I don't have that much commitment, so if you are interested in seeing the document, email individually and I'll send it to you.

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.

En Xristiwi,

Rev. Bryant J. Williams III
