Ok....it's been a few weeks....what do I need to do to properly type in Greek (just in case I decide I want to compose.

Oh Yeah....I know, I know, I know, I should know this since I work on a computer for a (meager) living....but I haven't taken the time to figure it out, and it's much easier to ask :)

Which OS do you use? You ought to be able to install Greek from your Keyboard settings (if Win98) or Regional and Language Options (if WinXP). I think Win2000 also has it under Keyboard, but I cannot remember for certain.

I am *gasp* using both OSX and XP...not on the same computer. I have an iBook, and a Dell P4. I have yet to completely switch....I probably never will entirely (because on occaison I like to game), but I am planning on getting a Mac Desktop soon (perhaps a mini Mac).

You may be in luck: Apple opens itself to Windows
The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.
DownLOEBables - Free books from the Loeb Classical Library

Latine seu Grace necesse est hoc loco dicere. Ecce, bene sunt omnia.

Just the other day I investigated whether I could switch back to Windows (my iBook being on the edge of destruction and me really, really missing my superb Finereader OCR software). Sophokeys was one of the (many) reasons I had to conclude 'NO'.

Switch already :D

(oops sorry Luce, post not written in Latin or Greek :oops: )
