We have excluded from this listing as impractical fonts which have only a partial implemetation of Greek Extended.

There is some discussion of setup issues on our Font Configuration page. See also:

Display

To guarantee optimal display, we use the precomposed Unicode polytonic combinations, where available (Normalization Form C), rather than combining diacritics (Normalization Form D). For example, A)/ is displayed as the single character (ἄ), not the combined characters ἄ (ἄ). The two Unicode strings are definitionally entirely equivalent, and it is the Operating System's job to render the latter as the former. However, Greek polytonic does not follow the default behaviour for multiple diacritics; by default these stack on top of each other (as in Vietnamese), whereas an acute or grave appears next to the breathing mark. Since polytonic Greek is a relatively low priority in the computer industry, and the proper handling of Unicode diacritics is still incipient (requiring sophisticated font engines like OpenType still not widely available), it is safer to use the precomposed characters. In fact, the World Wide Web Consortium recommends the use of Normalization Form C for World Wide Web documents.

In this, the TLG differs from Perseus, which formerly used combining diacritics (it now allows both options). This allowed Perseus to be viewed with (in ascending order of current quality of rendering): Lucida Sans Unicode, Tahoma, Lucida Grande, Arial Unicode, Code 2000, Gentium, Cardo, TITUS Cyberbit, Athena Unicode and New Athena Unicode, Everson Mono Unicode, Alphabetum, Antioch. Other fonts (Aristarcoj, Palatino Linotype, Porson) currently reject the combining diacritics, and will not display them properly. By using precomposed characters, by contrast, TLG texts are not viewable in Lucida Sans Unicode, but are viewable rather better (for all but non-canonical diacritic combinations) in all the fonts listed above.

Note that the underlying representation of the text, when the TLG converts its texts to Unicode, is still likely to have separate diacritic characters (Normalization Form D), for reasons of internal processing.

MacOSX is more insistent than other operating systems on true boldface or italic versions of fonts being available; whereas other operating systems 'fake' italic or boldface by slanting or thickening the font, MacOSX will either ignore the style command, or switch to a different font which has the style available. In the preceding list, styles other than the default plain are indicated.

Test characters

The repertoire of characters required to support TLG text display is still inconsistent from platform to platform and from font to font. In the following, we have listed likely problem characters, and their absence in the fonts we have had access to (Aisa, Alexander, Alkaios, Alphabetum, Antioch, Arial, Aristarcoj, Athena Unicode, Cardo, Caslon, CERG, Code 2000, Chrysanthi Unicode, Computer Modern, DejaVu, Everson Mono Unicode, FreeMono, FreeSerif, Galatia SIL, Galilee Unicode Gk, Gandhari, Gentium, Greek Font Society fonts, jGaramond, KadmosU, LeedsUni, Linux Libertine, Lucida Grande, Magenta, MgOpen Canonica, Monospace, New Athena Unicode, Old Standard, Palatino, Porson, SBL Greek, Silver Humana, Tahoma, Tempora, Times, Thryomanes, TITUS Cyberbit). As will be noted, different fonts have different coverage, and users will have to compromise between aesthetics and coverage in picking their font. (The two do not inherently go together!)

As a general comment, proper display of TLG texts requires characters not only from the Latin-1, Latin Extended-A, Greek, and Greek Extended character sets, but also punctuation and editorial signs to be found in the General Punctuation, Arrows, Mathematical Operators, Miscellaneous Technical, Miscellaneous Symbols, and CJK Symbols and Punctuation sets. (The latter, though nominally Chinese punctuation, includes the double square brackets [4, ]4 (deletion brackets), which occur around 5000 times in the corpus.) Character sets and browsers may have difficultly finding many of these characters; however, the problem is not Unicode's in such instances, and it would be improper to devise workarounds (such as, for example, displaying double brackets as [[ ]]) while work is continuing on fully implementing Unicode standards. The TLG search engine also cannot take account of erroneously rendered glyphs such as Palatino's U+1FEC (Capital Rho with rough breathing, rendered as having a smooth breathing.)

Note also that some systems (notably MacOSX) are quite good at retrieving symbols from different fonts if the current selected font does not have the required character.

Because the recent additions to Unicode are incorporated in very few fonts, we have divided our listing into pre-Unicode 4.0 and Unicode 4 onwards.

Vusilius, Palatino, Alphabetum, SBL Greek, Athena & New Athena render the 'lightning-bolt' koppa in a more rounded fashion than might perhaps be familiar to Greeks from contemporary usage --- particularly in capital form. Aristarcoj, Galilee Unicode and SIL Galatia, on the other hand, follow the modern angular shape.

Currently these are rendered as capitals; in the near future (once the Unicode 3.0 symbols are more widely implemented), case will be recovered contextually. Case in numerals is currently distinguished in Aisa (but not for sampi), Alexander, Alphabetum, Antioch, Aristarcoj, Athena and New Athena Unicode (but not in Athena for Q-like Koppa), Cardo, Code 2000, FreeMono (only for stigma), Galilee Unicode Gk (only for sampi and koppas), Galatia SIL (not for Q-like Koppa), Lucida Grande, Old Standard, SBL Greek, Tempora, TITUS Cyberbit.

Circumflex appears beneath or on top of breathing mark in Arial, Gentium, Code 2000, Lucida Grande and TITUS Cyberbit. Circumflex appears to the side of breathing in Tahoma. Breathing appears to the side of circumflex in Galilee Unicode Gk. Combining diacritics do not exist in Magenta or Aisa; only combining acute, grave, and diaeresis exist in FreeMono.

The subscript reflects some Modern Greek practice; the adscript reflects usual Western practice. The adscript displays as follows: Subscript: Aisa, Alexander, Arial, Athena, Chrysanthi, Computer Modern, DejaVu, FreeMono, FreeSerif, Greek Font Society, MgOpen Canonica, Old Standard, Segoe, Theano Didot, Theano Old Style, Tempora, Tahoma, TITUS Cyberbit, Vusilius Old Face; Lowercase Adscript: Alkaios, Alphabetum, Aristarcoj, Cardo, CERG, Code 2000, Galatia SIL, Galilee Unicode, Gandhari, Gentium, Hindsight, LeedsUni, Lucida Grande, New Athena, Palatinos, Theano Modern, Thryomanes, Times; Uppercase Adscript: Vusilius.

οὐλομένην, ἣ μυρί’ ᾿Αχαιοῖς ἄλγε’ ἔθηκε,
πολλὰς δ’ ἰφθίμους ψυχὰς ῎Αϊδι προΐαψεν
ἡρώων, αὐτοὺς δὲ ἑλώρια τεῦχε κύνεσσιν
οἰωνοῖσί τε πᾶσι, Διὸς δ’ ἐτελείετο
βουλή,  (5)
ἐξ οὗ δὴ τὰ πρῶτα διαστήτην ἐρίσαντε
᾿Ατρεΐδης τε ἄναξ ἀνδρῶν καὶ δῖος ᾿Αχιλλεύς.
  Τίς τάρ σφωε θεῶν ἔριδι ξυνέηκε μάχεσθαι;
Λητοῦς καὶ Διὸς υἱός· ὃ
γὰρ βασιλῆϊ χολωθεὶς
