New List/Intro Greek Students; Perseus Greek display

Although this appears to be aimed at beginning students of classical Attic
Greek, it strikes me as something that might be of interested to list users
of b-greek who are beginning the Koine as well, and perhaps for those who
teach it, this might also be worth knowing about.

Incidentally, the hum from Greg Crane today has been the discovery that the
SMK Greek fonts do not display Greek properly on Netscape 2.0. A fix is in
the works, however, which will probably involve suggesting that Netscape
2.0 users set their fonts to "user defined"--this only for those using N
2.0; the original scheme was set up for Netscape 1.1.
