The best commercial fonts for both Greek and Hebrew are from Linguist's
Software, Dr. Phil Payne, PO Box 580, Edmonds, WA 98020, (206)775-1130,
fax 771-5911--but they aren't cheap: list is about $100 each.

A good alternative is to use the fonts that Bill Mounce provides with his
vocab. software and textbook. The Greek font is a TrueType font and can be
downloaded from:

His Hebrew font is only a bitmapped font, so is less useful.

Other sources of useable fonts are the various Bible software programs:
Accordance on the Mac platform and Logos on Windows (you didn't say which
you used). Both have good Greek and Hebrew fonts if you have the modules
that include Greek and Hebrew texts. (Logos has apparently even licensed
the Graeca font from Linguist's Software for v. 2.) Others on this list use
SMK Greek Keys (or some such name/font as that), but I'm not familiar with
that font.
