    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).
