Have Trouble viewing Greek Unicode Fonts on WinXP Pro

When I view a page written in a Greek unicode font some of the Greek characters display correctly but the rest display as rectangular boxes. Is there a specific font I need to download or something like that?

Thanks,

translation help

I am reading a book and there is a latin phrase used that I am having trouble understanding in context. The sentence containing the phrase is: "The first sine qua non of dispensationalism is the distinction between Isreal and the Church."

I am having trouble with the word "qua" in the phrase. When I look it up, it seems to note placement or direction but I can't seem to catch its meaning in this phrase. ...

Orberg texts?

I saw some old threads that mentioned these texts ("lingva latina" series: http://users.cybercity.dk/~bbe6711/ ) and the opinions were generally positive. Are their any more recent views from people on the board about Orberg's books?

Recommendations for reading

Salvete Omnes,

I'm about to wrap up my first year of Latin, and I was wondering what sort of literature you would recommend for someone that understands the basics of Latin (e.g. the six tenses, five declensions, 1st/2nd/3rd adj., personal pronouns, demonstrative adj., etc....). Also, I have a question about the noun Gades, Gadium- f. pl. Gades, Cadiz (a town in Spain) I don't understand how you can have a plural of a town?

Thanks ...

help with a tiny phrase

paucis diebus post orbilius a discipulis mortem claudiae, uxoris titi ac matris sexti, audit.

But I cannot understand "paucis diebus post orbilius a discipulis mortem, ..., audit."
This is what I have got so far: "for ...

Ancient Greek last names

Well, was there such a thing? I'm trying to find a list of the earliest Greek last names. It's hard to find a list of these, let alone info on this topic. (Please tell me it's at least pre-byzantine! :o )
