Actually the machine I use for typing Classical Greek has
Linux (Red Hat 9) running with the version of Open Office
shipped on the install CD-s.

This is exactly my problem. But it's nice to hear that Office 2003
at least finally caught up with this issue. This may be the right
motive for open source tools to follow the example.
Does anyone know of a present Linux program that can cope with
such a task? (I understand that Open Type/True Type fonts
themselves already have the required functionality, even if
it isn't used by all font designers.)
