GreekKeys Test (Athenian, Attika)

This is a test page meant to show you how various characters will appear if you have the Greek font properly installed in your system. The GreekKeys font encoding includes the fonts Athenian, Attika, Kadmos, and other fonts; they were originally created by George Walsh, and are being maintained by Donald Mastronarde (University of California, Berkeley). Of these fonts, Athenian is available for public download (for Macintosh and PC) at Donald Mastronarde's page. The American Philological Association is distributing the 2002 revision of GreekKeys, which is MacOSX compatible. A GreekKeys compatible font, Xanthippe, is also available for download at the Ancient Languages section of the EducETH page, hosted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich).

Warning: as of this writing, Netscape for Windows will not display GreekKeys fonts at all. Use a different browser or font.
