    Here's an article by Deborah Anderson which should be of interest:

         Deborah Anderson, “Preliminary Guidelines to Using
         Unicode for Greek,” C. Blackwell, R. Scaife, edd.,
         Classics@ volume 2: C. DuĂ© & M. Ebbott, executive
         editors, The Center for Hellenic Studies of Harvard
         University, edition of April 3, 2004.
