    Yes, I know - I've seen professionally published magazines with the
    wrong ano teleia glyph, bigger and lower than it should be. It was
    probably not even caused by normalization - I think most Greek keyboards
    produce 00B7 and not 0387.

    Since language-dependend glyph selection isn't very widespread for now,
    would it be too much to ask font designers to put a MIDDLE DOT glyph
    appropriate for Greek in fonts capable of displaying Greek text?

    That's a just a wish, BTW - I don't expect designers to do what I say
    just because I sent a message in a mailing list ;-)
