Carl wrote about using Greek fonts for B-Greek:
On the other
hand, although you say it is frustrating to try to transliterate lots of
Greek, I would submit that (1) it would not be less frustrating--until
has gotten used to it--to learn to type a whole new alphabet together
its diacritical marks than it is to learn the transliteration scheme.
enough trouble with the transliteration scheme myself owing to the fact
that several characters are represented in our transliteration scheme by
keys on the keyboard that are different from those I use to type my
GreekKeys font. I think, therefore, that it would be worth the effort to
acquire the facility to use the transliteration, since it will be just as
frustrating and time-consuming to learn a new font-keying--and my guess
that once we have such a font available, we'll still see several
list-members continuing to use one of our current transliteration
and we may still see some continue to do what I find particularly
annoying--paste in from their own GNT Study software the characters which
look fine on their own screens but appear as gobbledygook on the screens
others who don't have that font installed in their own systems.
I would like to agree with Carl. I recently learned B-greek
transliteration scheme. After trying to post my questions in this
scheme and reading other posts, now it is no problem for me. In fact,
this transliteration scheme is much easier than all of Greek fonts, e.g.
Sgreek, SPloine (?), and others, as Carl said. I managed to memorize
Sgreek fonts because the bible software I am using, Bible Windows 5.5,
uses Sgreek font. But it was an accident I use this particular software.
If this is true of many persons, then requiring a particular greek font
for B-greek would be too much a burden, and will create a communication
problem. So, I think that the most simple common ground,
like the current scheem, would be better.
