In order to display polytonic Greek (Greek with accent marks and other diacritics), you will need a Unicode Greek font. If you see boxes displayed as part of this Greek word, you need to get a Unicode font such as Arial Unicode MS or TITUS Cyberbit Basic installed on your computer:
χαῖρε (this means hello!)
Arial Unicode MS. You may already have a nice Unicode Greek font included as part of your Microsoft Windows font set. Windows XP comes with Arial Unicode MS, and this is what Microsoft calls its "Universal Font" for Unicode. Arial Unicode MS contains a very nice polytonic Greek font. If you are using Windows XP it is installed automatically. The Microsoft website provides instructions for adding Arial Unicode MS to Windows 2000. You can download a copy of the Arial Unicode MS from the Unbound Bible website.
TITUS Cyberbit Basic. If you do not have a Unicode Greek font, you can download and install the free TITUS Cyberbit Basic font, which is available for both Windows and Macintosh:
TITUS Cyberbit Basic Unicode Greek font
You will then have to look on the right-hand side to see where it says: Instrumentalia: Software / Fonts, and click on the Software / Fonts link. Unfortunately, I cannot give you a direct link because they have redesigned their website in this very user unfriendly way, but the font can still be downloaded in this way, and instructions are provided in English. If you have any questions or problems, let me know and I will do my best to help you with that.
