πᾶ (ποῦ)

Archimedes is said to have said,

Arateia Notia

How to link to a Unicode web page?

I don't know the exact answer, but I think the problem is that it is a .txt file and doesn't tell browsers which text coding system to use. When I first looked at it with firefox (in linux) it was all garbage. I went to view->character encoding and saw that it was defaulting to 'Western ISO-8859-1' which is what most non-unicode pages show up for me. I then switched to 'utf-8' which is what most ...
