Thanks a bunch for your reply. I think I understand the distinction between code and glyph: I see glyphs on my monitor, but to the computer they are merely codes or characters, right?
Perhaps I should have stated my problem this way instead: I would like to display ancient Greek on a web page I am working on (I am working in simple HTML: I am new to this . . . ). How should I go about it, if I want to be viewable from computers with many different configurations ("universally viewable")?
The text I want could be anything Greek: e.g. I have some Anakreontea
in a book I'd like to type up. Or it could be assignments or anything really.
I can write in Greek with Microsoft's Word. I can shift the keyboard and with the proper font I can choose all the diacritical marks from the Symbol Box. I already have the Keyman from Tavultesoft. It works very well, too. Or, I can write in beta code . . .
I have, btw, noticed that I can see the Greek at Bibliotheca Augustana from a pc without SP Ionic and the like.
You are right regarding the final sigma. My "beta code" has j's. What is the proper beta code for this? Also: do you have any idea why Sean's converter doesn't handle the accented capitals very well?
