Dear list members,

I assume that many of you use WinGreek for typing Greek on a PC. It will
also have occurred to many that this shareware package is not running under
Win95. As far as I know, so far no update or alternative has come up
(please let me know if this is wrong). Therefore, a new forthcoming
shareware package by Ralph Hancock (hancock@dircon.co.uk) and Neil Beshoori
(besh@cix.compulink.co.uk) is most welcome. It will contain a shareware
version of the program WinKeySwap by N. Beshoori, adapted to the use with
WinGreek fonts, and the typeface GreekOldFace by R. Hancock. This font is
fully compatible with WinGreek; it will also be possible to keep using the
old WinGreek font. The software will be available in the near future. I
will keep this list posted.

Furthermore, I would like to draw your attention to a section of my web
page, where I have gathered information about fonts for Patristic scholars
(http://www.uni-bonn.de/~ute404/fonts.html), especially for rarely used
languages such as Armenian, Coptic etc. I would be glad, if this was of
some help. If you know any additional information, please let me know. But
be forewarned: The text is only in German so far... (I might provide an
English version at some point if I feel, there is a need.)

Martin Wallraff.
