Late last night I got back from a very pleasant two days at the Ancient Studies: New Technology III conference in Harrisonburg -- more on that later. While I was there, I picked up some tricks that should theoretically improve this site. The first has just been installed: unicode (e.g. Φ for capital omega) to display Greek even for viewers who have no Greek font installed on their machines.
If anyone wants to help me see whether it worked, please take a look at Juvenal's first satire and let me know whether the Greek-letter manuscript designations came through. There should be a capital omega at the end of line 87, an end-of-word sigma at the end of 100, and a capital phi at the end of 104. There are all in the apparatus criticus in the right-hand column, just before the double vertical slashes that mark the end of each critical note. If you do not see Greek letters in all three places, I would like to know what you do see, and what browser you are using. Answers may be left in the contents.
Comments have been turned back on. Please ignore any spam that survives long enough for you to see it. I haven't found a technical solution for that yet.Posted by Michael Hendry at December 5, 2004 11:54 PM
