I downloaded and installed the GFS Porson otf on my MacBook Pro. I then went to Safari/Preferences/Appearance and changed the Standard font display for websites to GFS Porson 16 and the encoding to Unicode (UTF-8). Then I went to the Herodotus web page of Perseus: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/tex ... 99.01.0125
. However, the Greek text was not displayed in Porson.
This is what displayed, using Perseus' "Unicode (precombined)" setting:Ἡροδότου Ἁλικαρνησσέος ἱστορίης ἀπόδεξις ἥδε, ὡς μήτε τὰ γενόμενα ἐξ ἀνθρώπων τῷ χρόνῳ ἐξίτηλα γένηται, μήτε ἔργα μεγάλα τε καὶ θωμαστά, τὰ μὲν Ἕλλησι τὰ δὲ βαρβάροισι ἀποδεχθέντα, ἀκλεᾶ γένηται, τά τε ἄλλα καὶ δι᾽ ἣν αἰτίην ἐπολέμησαν ἀλλήλοισι.
I don't know what font it is.
The Help menu in Safari explains that I can change the font display only for web pages that do not specify their own fonts. The "Greek Display" window in the "Display Preferences" section of the Perseus Herodotus web page does not list Porson. It lists only Unicode (precombined), Unicode (combining diacriticals), Beta Code, SPIonic, SGreek, GreekKeys, and Latin Transliteration.
So, how did you get Perseus to display its web pages in the Porson font?
I decided to see what would happen if I copied the Perseus extract above into Unicorn, which I have set for italics and 30 point size. Beautiful! However, when I copied the Unicorn text (Command + C) and pasted it here, the text did not display as Porson.
