Hi all,

I've only recently began my study of Greek and I haven't really chosen a textbook yet. I was wondering if Athenaze is good book. Some of you seem to hate this book with a passion, and I don't know why as it appears to be a good text.

Code Conversion

I am working on a project and I must find a way to represent Greek on a web page.

I gather Unicode is the best solution. If understand this system correctly, all characters, ordinary Greek letters as well as all the accented vowels, come in codes resembling this:

& #966;& #952;& #8051;& #947;& #956;& #945; (please ignore the spaces)

Is it correct that web pages with this coding can be universally viewed, even from computers ...

accent in infinitive "diakatharai"

Hi, Everybody:
I've come across the infinitive "diakatharai" with acute (7-th century A.D. text). I checked in TLG, and found some random examples with circumflex, but none with the acute.
Is the variant with the acute grammatically possible, or is it definitely a typo?
Many thanks in advance.

Aoidoi.org triple-whammy

First, in my continuing obsession with Pindar, a commentary on Olympian 11 (thanks to chad for taking a first look at that and offering suggestions).

In order to make Pindar a little easier to read metrically - and to save myself some typing for commentaries - I have updated my Introduction to Greek Meter to include a section on Dactylo-epitrite and Pindar's aeolic practice (it's on the last three pages).

Finally, after reading Scribes and ...
