I am wondering if anyone else is corresponding privately using Greek fonts
rather than transliteration?
I have been corresponding in email and ICQ using the BibleWorks fonts. It
enhances communication concerning Greek [at least aesthetically] but for
Hebrew, it is so much easier to read than the curious transliteration scheme
of b-hebrew, which I still can't absorb.
I can't type quickly in Greek and I am even slower in Hebrew: I find it
works best if I prepare my stuff beforehand. The biggest problem is
remembering the keys for the breathing marks, accents and subscripts. [I
feel like one of those TV cooks: here's something we prepared before the
I know this has been brought up before [I plead age and insanity!] but is
there a way of having a common font for Mac and IBM?
Maybe it is a case of simultaneous deja vu and amnesia: I seem to remember
forgetting this before!
