Sorry to ask (probably) such a simple question, but can anyone tell me how I will be able to read the Greek fonts in this forum?

Thanks for your help - it would improve my Greek to be able to read you, I'm sure!

Dinny

P.S. The way I'm can see it now has nothing to do with Greek fonts, just a lot of strange latin letters....

Hello Dinny,

Did you try changing your encoding to one of the two Greek encodings (Windows or ISO)?

Try that and let me know if it works.

Regards,
Nadia

So wouldn't even know where to change the encoding

I don't understand how come I can "read" Greek internet sites - meaning that I can actually SEE the Greek font, f.inst. on OTE's website - but I can't do the same in ProZ.

How to Dec 6, 2005

Explorer menu bar:

View > Encoding > and then choose one of the two Greek encodings.

That should do the trick

Good lucky Dinny

Thanks very much, Nadia - I knew it would probably be easy, but when you don't know how to it seems like a big problem!

Now I can practise my Greek reading (or trying to read) the Greek forum!

My keyboard is all set for Greek ... it's just that I don't understand what I'm writing

People tellσ me that in about five years I will be able to speak Greek... σιγα σιγα

It's just that my temper is more like τακα τακα

Italian was definitely much easier!
