Re: FW: Problems with Classic Greek

       You probably just saw squares because the font you were using
       didn't have mappings from those codepoints to appropriate
       glyphs. Begin by checking the content of you font, or by trying
       an alternate font.

       I am a Swedish student of computational linguistics,
       and, for an assignment, I am going to construct a program
       that can display classical Greek characters.

       That is, not only the ordinary letters (0370-03FF)
       that appear in the Windows font "Symbol",
       but also the ones from "Greek Extended" (1F00-1FFF),
       with extra signs above and below the vowels.

       I am using Java, and when specified Unicode numbers
       for the ordinary Greek (0370-03FF), it worked allright,
       but the "Greek Extended" just appeared as squares.

       I also tried to use the "Combining Diacritical Marks"
       (0300-036F), but these also appeared as squares.

       What do I need to do to solve this problem?
       Do I need to install Windows Multi-Language Support?
       Or do I need additional fonts?

       Please reply quickly.
       Thank you!

       Best regards,
