There is no standard but this system is popular:

Greek Alphabet: A B G D E Z H Q I K L M N C O P R S T U F X Y W
rough breathing:h, iota subscript:i, digamma:w; acute:/, grave:\, circumflex:=

I think that the introductory materials for this list should include
a statement about the transliteration system. What do others think?
