write in polytonic Greek...
using Windows 9x and Word 97 or later, you need a
separate utility (not included in Win9x), enabling you to assign certain
key combinations to the various accented Greek characters.
1. Up to now, the most convenient utility of that kind,
in our opinion, is "Polytonistis" by Magenta.
Polytonistis is a commercial program and it comes with its own fonts.
You can write using those fonts and then convert the text (Edit -
select all; Format - font) to any other Unicode font, including Athena,
or you can write immediately using Athena.
2. If you prefer a free (but somehow difficult to use)
utility you can try Unicode Keys. Home

program please check that address for any updates or information.
