New Athena Unicode Font

Are others here familiar with this font? It puts some extra characters in the "Private Use Area" (PUA) of the Unicode encoding, and allows characters like alpha w/ macron + acute, that the normal fonts like Gentium don't.

You might use an editor that allows the entry of Unicode escape sequences. Or you can use a program like the Windows Character Map program to copy the characters into the cut-paste buffer, then paste them into a text file, and cut/paste them from the text file into your docs as needed. I do the latter. I have a text file that has a key to the Windows Greek keyboard sequences, in case I forget them. I put the PUA characters at the top of this file.
