I really don't like to be a whiner about help that is supplied from
people's reference software, but may I suggest transliterating the
Greek cited in quoted references like this into one of our standard
schemes, please? Although I can figure out some of this cited Greek
which, when pasted into an e-mail message, will come up as
gobbledy-gook for anyone who doesn't have that font installed in the
system, it's an effort indeed. When I've cited stuff from Accordance,
I've converted the Greek that's cited in Louw and Nida or whatever into
the standard B-Greek transliteration scheme. This takes a bit of time,
but I'd like to think it makes it more useful to people reading the
cited article.
