For information on the Greek font which Textkit uses and how to use it, see this post in the Learning Greek forum.

We'll need more details on the problem before we can help you. Can you elaborate?

Hi,

It seems that representing greek with Spionic font is not working on Firefox 1 with Windows XP.

With IExplorer everithing is OK.

Can you see this?

ἐν ἀρχῇ ἐποίησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν.

Are there any boxes or anything? XP should be fine. You just need to have updated fonts.

Snakeblack,

You shouldn't be using SPIonic for new posts anyway. Get the Gentium or New Athena Unicode font, and set up a Greek Polytonic keyboard to enter Greek text for new posts. For old posts that have SPIonic, they should show up as betacode if you don't have the SPIonic font installed, and betacode isn't that hard to read.
