Display adjustments

Normally, Internet Explorer will display Greek polytonic pages by auto-selecting "unicode (UTF-8)" encoding. However, it has been reported that on Windows 98 sometimes a page would display properly by manually selecting "Greek (Windows)" encoding (go to the "View" menu, and then to "Encoding" - "More"), instead of unicode utf-8; you have to experiment with these options, provided you have already installed polytonic fonts. Read also the next instruction:

At Internet Explorer's "Tools" - "Internet options" - "Accessibility" menu, all boxes must be clear, and at "Tools" - "Internet options" - "Fonts" menu, "Language script: Latin based" should use Palatino Linotype or any polytonic unicode font.

To read polytonic Greek in Outlook Express, go to "Tools", "Options", "Read", "Fonts", select "Unicode" and there define as default font Palatino Linotype or some other unicode font containing polytonic Greek.



To save some page on your computer for off-line study, choose the option "Web archive (mht)". If you save as "html only" or "txt" you will damage the Greek parts of the page.

You can also copy and paste text from Elpenor's pages to MS Word or any other word processor supporting unicode encoding.
