Wouldn't it be neat if someone came up with a Greek font that would
read our transliteration scheme. Then we could use a format something like
the following: <font face="b-greek">*GRA/FWN OU(/TWS, A)NAGINW/SKEIN
DU/NANTAI PA/NTES</font>. The accents and diacriticals, of course would be
optional, as they are now, in posts to the list. The HTML markers would
also be optional. If someone had a viewer with HTML capabilities, he could
add the markers to the transliterated, unmarked Greek text, if he wished,
and see the passage in the b-greek font. But those that had HTML
capabilities in their e-mail readers would see any marked text in the
correct font right off the bat.
