They may change fonts, I don't know, but they will not go back to UBS3
because that was set in hot lead! I believe that UBS4 was typeset on a Mac
with Linguist's Software's fonts. I think that font is a good compromise for
screen/laser printers, but there are real commercial Greek fonts for
typesetting which are better at high resolution.
