Yes. This is what Peter wrote earlier today:
Transliteration of Greek or Cyrillic into Latin
script is one thing. A quite different thing is
encoding Greek or Cyrillic with Unicode characters
defined as for Latin script but displaying these
as Greek or Cyrillic with a masquerading font
(your word, I think, John). The latter corresponds
to what scholars of Phoenician etc currently do
when they want to display or print out in Phoenician
script (or whatever you may call it).
