Hmm. The only Unicode editor called "keyman" I can find does have to be paid for, and only works on Windows.
Keyman from www.tavultesoft.com is free for personal use and you are right, it only works on windows :( - that's a pity because it really works well and is easy to handle... :)

On a separate topic ... I also have my current profile set to "French" but everything is still in English.

...but there are a few problems, not least of which is entry. Jeff'd have to write some sort of input form to compose the Greek. Ever heard of Keyman?

I would have translated the first sentence that way:<br /><br />[size=150]δῶρα δὲ ἐκ τῆς ἀγορᾶς ἔπεμπες τοῖς τῆς νήσου θεο=ις.<br /><br />Now the question for those who are really good at Greek:<br /><br />I think that the genitive [size=150]τῆς νήσου should be set attributiv (sorry, don't know the English word) - am I right? If not, why should it be prädikativ?<br /><br />Clemens :)

I had similar thoughts about the Greek grammar of Kühner and Gerth. It would be wonderful if it was available at textkit, since it is one of the best greek grammars you can get...but I have no idea about the copyright...it was finished in the end of 19th century ???

In fact you can hear sometimes: "Rettet dem Dativ" but genitve has also got problems: Instead of "während des Essens", most people now say "während dem Essen" - and there are several other examples for the genitive being substituted for another case... :)
