Reading the Greek Font
Reading the Greek Font on Netscape 6 and up and on Mozilla
The Greek font (with the diacritical marks) used in the unicode version of this dissertation is readable in Internet Explorer 5 and 6, Netscape 4.5 and up, and Opera.
Internet Explorer does not seem to correctly display all of the accent marks. Only the acute and grave seem to work. On Netscape and Mozilla:
Opera 6 seems to work fine viewing the Unicode version without any changes. It does not however support the Symbol font version. Netscape 3 does not support Unicode but does support the Symbol font.
- Go to the Edit menu and choose Preferences.
- Under the catagory of Appearance choose Fonts.
- Change the Encoding to Unicode.
- Set the Variable Width Font to Lucida Sans Unicode.
- Set the Fixed Width Font to Lucida Console.
- Click the OK button.
The following diacritical marks may be used (as illustrated here on an alpha):
acute ά grave ὰ circumflex α̑ smooth ἀ rough ἁ iota subscript α̨ diaeresis α̈
If you can see either of the following words in Greek font, you have the choice of viewing the Greek in the Symbol font version without the diacritical marks.
Teknia | Symbol
