Re: Fonts for the web: the real scoop

Another simple way of doing it, if you're dealing with passages of texts
at least, is to design a graphic that has your text on it in the Greek
font you prefer. Any modern browser can read a graphic, and while it may
take some time to download, if you put it in .JPG format it's pretty fast
-- and generally much faster than any of the java script-type methods.
This method would be tedious if you were working with strand-alone words,
but if you're doing something like passage & commentary or translation,
this system works very well.
