Help! Typing and viewing Greek fonts on the internet

Hello there; I am a newcomer to the Textkit community, and I am hoping that I can find help with two problems I'm having.

1) I want to type in polytonic Greek; as per the "Sticky" thread, I enabled polytonic Greek, and can achieve the full range of symbols with the Palatino Linotype font when using email, MS Word, or Notepad.

Classical Greek Vocabulary Cards from Vis-ed

Has anyone used this set of Classical Greek vocabulary cards before? I've always made my own cards in the past when studying other languages, but I was thinking of trying this set or trying to find a computer program for easily making cards. In short, I'm lazy and am tired of writing out cards--and my handwriting stinks. :)

"Good" in Greek ?

Another question for this day:

What does "good" mean in Greek ? Why are so many translations of "good" in Greek like eu, agathos, ethlos or kalos ?

Is there any difference in the use or does each one have a specia connoation ?

For example hasana in Arabic (like in names Hassan, Hussein, etc.) means beautiful & nice (referring to the idea that something beautiful must be good). And it's similar to the Greek ...

Greek prepositions: Why are they so strange ?

Hello to everybody,

I'm still learning Greek and gradually things go right, but since I started to learn, I asked myself: Why greek prepositions are so strage ?

They don't have just one meaning, but always several ones and I don't see the basic idea behind the word like direction etc. They seem to stretch over a variaty of meanings.
