GR 201 - Beginning Greek
Word-Processing in ancient Greek
To be able to read the Course Web Pages properly, and to work on assignments and reports, you will need a polytonic Unicode Greek font on your computer.
Here's a check to see if your computer has a polytonic Unicode font installed :
ἀ έ ῃ ϊ ὸ ῥ ϋ ᾧ
If you see some boxes amongst the characters, then you need to download and install a polytonic Greek Unicode font. This will enable you to read not only the basic Greek characters, but all the combinations of accents and breathings which are used with ancient Greek.
Go here for an MSWord .doc file which will tell you about Unicode Greek fonts
Go here for more about Unicode polytonic Greek fonts. If you wish to download any fonts, I suggest you start with Gentium
