    Do you mean Mac OS X, or Mac OS 9?

    For the former, TextEdit would work fine. If your friend is on Mac OS
    X 10.2 or later, the system font, Lucida Grande, has a full set of
    glyphs for Greek and Extended Greek. Otherwise any of the free Greek
    fonts on the Internet would work.

    On Mac OS 9, the situation is a bit grimmer, as there aren't many
    Unicode-savvy applications. SUE would be one option. You should be
    able to find it using Google.
