Who's stronger than whom.

Regarding a quote from Sebastian of a Japanese poem...<br /><br />That reminded me of this, from one of my Greek readers, "Stories and Legends, A First Greek Reader" by F.H. Colson, 1939.<br /><br />This is from the fables section. Not sure if it is Aesop.<br /><br />[face=SPIonic]<br />poihth/j tij le/gei o(/ti oi( qeoi/, poih/santej ta\ zw=|a, ge/raj ti e(ka/stw| die/neiman. kai\ toi=j me\n tau/roij ke/ra e)/dosan, toi=j de\ i(/ppoij o(pla/j, toi=j de\ o)/rnisi pte/rugaj, kai\ toi=j a)/lloij a)/llo ti toiou=ton. a)nqrw/poij de\ ou)de\n toiou=ton e)/dosan, a)lla\ toij= me\n a)ndra/sin a)reth/n, tai=j de\ gunaici\ ka/lloj. kai\ tou=to e)/xousa h( gunh\ pa/ntwn krati/sth e)sti/. oi( ga\r a)/ndrej pa/nta nikw=si th=| a)reth=|, ai( de\ gunai=kej nikw=si tou\j a)/ndraj tw=| ka/llei.<br />[/face]<br /><br />Sounds like something a poet would say.<br /><br />--<br />wm

<br /><br />Goodness. I actually do so this as real Greek, now that I've installed SPIonic on my little Mac. I see it as wonky betacode on my Unix machine.<br /><br />--<br />wm

Hey William,<br /><br />"Christian script" was just a joke based on the fact that on my screen it looked like something from the devil :o namely, whatever that code you're using is. I'm going to run and get the SPIonic fount from the links you guys gave me the other day soon.<br /><br />Do you think it would be a good idea to have a copy of the necessary founts for download here on the site? Then people could just get them right away without having to hunt for them and we could all type Greek that looks real, right here.
