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"
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.
