Re: greek text on android

Too bad the 'droid isn't more hospitable to ancient greek. Also too bad that flashcard program makers can't be more up-front about what languages they support and don't (don't they have specs that tell them this stuff?) I've been through several programs so far only to find out that it wasn't the p...
