I must admit that I am always interested to hear about Greek fonts
and how others cope with writing Greek in word-processing, web
documents etc. (indeed, it is one of the most useful things, to me,
about b-greek), so I will respond on-list.

I use WordPerfect and for Greek in it I used SPIONIC, the Scholars
Press free font. It works fine in WordPerfect (and elsewhere) and
is, in my experience, pretty user-friendly, e.g. ( for rough
breathing, ) for smooth breathing, \ for grave, / for acute etc.

I have the address for SPIONIC on my homepage (address below).
Jonathan Robie also has a good list of Greek fonts on his page.

Hope this helps
