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 ...

How might I read the Greek that you and others use on this and other boards? Do I have to download a specific font and activate it somehow? Is this too puerile a request?
Also, your name came up in a reply to a posting about a new group. Adelaid wanted to know if any new Wheelock group might utilize the "internet-based GTSS maintained by Paul Bell." Also, is yours the Odessey II ...

Consonantal U: V or W ?

I have recently come across a very compelling and rather shocking document on Latin pronunciation, quoting the Latin grammarians themselves, on exactly what the Romans had to say about the sound of consonantal u, which is most often spelled as v in contemporary texts. I have taken great pains to transfer the section dealing with consonantal U in full, with my own BBord italicizations, emphasis, and transliterations to add clarity. Notate: if I make a ...

Soul Food

For 11 years I lived in Texas. I wasn't there by my decision in the first place, and unlike my younger sisters, I never took to the place. I couldn't handle the heat, the fire ants and hostile shrubbery (mesquite'll mess you up good), nor the - with apologies to Baptists - Southern Baptists and associated Evangelicals asking me what I considered rude and intrusive questions about my religion (always trouble in my case).

Eventually ...

volo volare

Some people say that if man were meant to fly, he would have been born with wings. I say, man was meant to fly because he was born with the mind to create the technology to achieve flight. What do you think? :?:

Vocative case

Beginning in chapter 4, the noun paradigms don't include the vocative case. I assume this means that it is identical to the nominative, but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks.

Iliad 2:207

(\Ws o(/ge koirane/wn di/epe strato/n;

The translations I used to check my word have something like; 'Thus he masterfully went through the host.'
I took the participle to go with o(/ge to mean something like; 'the ruling one.'
How does this participle get to act as an adverb?
