I have attempted to collect together a number of these on-line
Greek NT texts on a page at:


It includes two new one's, Michael Haggett's "New Testament
in Greek" and (anon) "The Online Greek Bible".

In my opinion the best on-line Greek text is far and away the
late Tony Fisher's Greek New Testament
(http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~fisher/gnt). You won't need
to download any fonts, it is fully searchable and easy to use,
browse etc. The text approximates to Nestle-Aland 26.

As far as fonts are concerned, I generally recommend SPIonic
because it's free and user-friendly, though not all on b-greek
agree with me. You can now access it along with SPTiberian
(Hebrew) and straightforward instructions + added functionality
in the "Tyndale Font Kit", for details of which see

I have in the pipeline a fresh page on my All-in-One Biblical
Resources Search which will gather together some of the best
of these searchable Greek NTs + other useful internet Greek
resources. For the time being you can access some of them
on the "Bible Versions and Translations" Page
