 comfortable with that platform<br>&gt; and don't want to switch unless it's absolutely necessary.<br>&gt; I found some references to fonts on the web (although<br>&gt; these were from 1996 and may be dated) and need to learn<br>&gt; to get them and install them so WFW97 can use them. &nbsp;But<br>&gt; is there a dictionary, spell-checker, thesaurus, and grammar<br>&gt; checker (as I have for Spanish)?<br>Un interesante juego de fonts, totalmente freeware, podes encontrar en &quot;Hellenistic Greek Linguistics Pages&quot; &lt;http://www.entmp.org/HGrk/.>;, ademas de fonts en hebreo. Con las fonts TrueTipe no tendras ningún problema para usarlas con tus programas preferidos.<br>Sobre la posibilidad de un diccionario para que pueda corregir KOINH en Word, no tengo idea de como pueda conseguirse.</p>

<p>&gt; <br>&gt; 2) &nbsp;Is there some software that I can use for extra practice?<br>&gt; It's much easier for me to type than write longhand. &nbsp;Does<br>&gt; anyone know of some good genuinely useful software?<br>&gt; <br>&gt; 3) &nbsp;I know this must come up often but, with apologies -<br>&gt; What is the best NT Greek Bible software for scholarly<br>&gt; work. &nbsp;I come out of a Roman Catholic background and<br>&gt; am used to using the NRSV and NAB in my own work.<br>&gt; I'm primarily interested in this as a scholarly tool, not<br>&gt; as an aid to my personal spirituality. &nbsp;Can someone<br>&gt; offer some suggestions.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; Thanks for any help than can be offered, and my<br>&gt; apologies if this is ground that has been covered<br>&gt; before.<br>&gt; <br>&gt; Tom Conry<br>&gt; <br>&gt; <br>&gt; ---<br>&gt; b-greek home page: <font color="#0000FF"><u>http://sunsite.unc.edu/bgreek><font color="#000000"><br>&gt; To post a message to the list, <font color="#0000FF"><u>mailto:b-g
