Representing Greek

I'm sure this topic has been done to death, but I can't seem to read Greek text in this forum using my browser (Safari, using Mac OS X.3).
I have SPIonic installed. I have no problems using the Perseus site. I'm probably being obtuse, but perhaps someone can suggest what the problem is.

kopos kopon luei

In my reader there is a saying that goes like this; ko/poj ko/pon lu/ei
I think I get the drift but I am not sure.
Toil dissolves toil.
In other words doing the toil now prevents hardship later. Is that right?

The Words of a Math Division.

h(miseia moi=ra/ e)sti to\ e(\n toi=n duoi=n.I think this sentence means 'one (part) divided by two is a half part.
But what does toi=n mean.
And what is the form duoi=n.

Thank you.

Edit. I figured it out: toi=n and duoi=n.
Dual Genitive of the article and of du/o.

Is this positive or negative

ou)k e)/xomen h(mei=j, w(/sper kai\ u(mei=j, oi)=kon me/giston
Does this sentence mean: We do not have the biggest house, like you do.
Or does it mean: We, just like you, do not have the biggest house.

Is it possible for a word like me/giston to be used to emphasise the size?
In other words, can it mean -very big- rather than -the biggest-?
In English this is quite common.

Proper Names

Hi all

I am a relative newbie to Greek and I am a bit confused about the use of the definite article in relation to proper names. I don't think I've seen the definite article used thus in any modern language: The Harry? Le Jacques? Well, actually the Germans do use it to some extent as in Die Asta, and the Italians do it, too, except it has a specific meaning, I think.

But back ...

i am a student of philosophy, currently working on my diploma thesis (on Plato and Aristotle), and therefore decided that it is about time to not only refresh my greek, but also to start anew in learning it accurately again. i took a one semester course (well, actually it was a two semester course, but i only did the first part...), learning basic greek ...

All the Greek Verbs

I'm reading enough Greek now to get stuck on the verbs. The reviews of Marinone's reference book of All the Greek Verbs are either very positive or very negative. From the description, though, the book sounds as if it's what I need. Does anybody use this book?

A Greek Boy at Home

The deadline job completed, I can spend a bit more time reading Greek.
I ran across a few problems that require some help.
The story I'm reading is called: a Greek Boy at Home.
