May I take this occasion first of all to welcome you as a new B-Greeker but
secondly to ask you please and advise other list-members once again that we
would prefer that list-members NOT use "styled text" but instead plain
ASCII text in messages to the list. The Greek in the above text came up
fine on my Mac system and screen, but I think it will not when I send this
on to the list in plain text--and it will come up in gobbledygook UNLESS
one happens to have that font installed on one's computer. Therefore I urge
list-members to use plain text for messages,the list's transliteration
scheme (at list's web site) and not to send messages in styled text to
B-Greek. Thanks.
