I have a greek language pack in Classic so I use that, but the kicker is that I cannot use it on X apps
There are greek fonts (accented and unaccented characters) because I saved one of my greek documents in classic word as a unicode file and opened it with text edit and there was no problem reading it.
The problem is input in X. I dont like hex, too much typing. There is a "symbol" keyboard laout but it is fashioned after the US keyboard layout and not the greek KB layout thus it takes some guess work sometimes to find the key to press. For example omega in the Greek KB is where the V is but in symbol omega is at the W. Also the ending-s (which looks similar to the latin small caps s, in the greek KB is at the Q but in symbol you must fo capital V to get it)...also not to mention the lack of accented characters which makes greek hard to read since accent matters.
For now for my website I use ISO-8859-7 as my standard (Also called ELOT 928). Since it is a *standard* it is supported by all platforms. UNIXen and LINUXen use ISO 8859-7 for greek (I just put something in the meta tag to tell it what to use, and I also leave the font name unspecified so I can let the user's system decide on what for to use).
I seriously hope apple fixes this because I do lots of composing in greek and as soon as most most apps that I use become OS X native I will probably forget about classic, except for a few really old apps that I use. I dont want greek input to be left behind...although it probably has a little. Most fonts are bitmapped and it pisses me off
There is only one font which seems to be true type...apple is behind on this...if you are going to do a "one world one cd" kind of deal you might as well include ALL languages dammit
