Not all Unicode fonts carry all the characters.
The magic words are "Polytonic Greek Unicode"
(BTW - there's even a Unicode range allocated to Klingon :-) but I haven't gone looking for a font that contains it)
I have a webpage at
which links to downloads for some of the Unicode fonts which contain polytonic Greek characters - but even at that, be warned - one of them has the breathing the wrong way round on capital rho, and another puts a gap between "capital rho with rough breathing" and the next character.
Some are better for word-processing, others for webpages. Some mess up when converting to .pdf files from .doc format. And probably some will get weird when used for email.
Well - Hector had trouble choosing the right spear didn't he?
I've also had quite good results with Times New Roman Unicode and some of the other Microsoft Unicode fonts.
