I am transcribing the text in a text editor (not a text processor like words) using some sort of self-made mark up (for italics, quotes, etc.) I then use a VBA-script to create a Word-document. That makes changing the formatting easier later on. Different scripts, e.g. Greek, are always a problem for plain text files. But bearing in mind NateD26's note (thank you!), perhaps it really is better not to transcribe. That way I can circumnavigate contentious issues. Starting with the web-site given by you I found a list of unicode-character numbers. Instead of giving the actual unicode-characters I shall use their hex-codes. This is rather unwieldy but a lot less problematic when dealing with plain text files.
Thank you both,
