For ancient Greek fonts, see this page.
These fonts follow the basic
key-mapping of the BibleWorks™ Hebrew font, with a few exceptions. Since
the Masoretic text does not use word dividers, and many ancient Hebrew
inscriptions do, the "period" key has been used for the word divider dot,
both upper and lower case. Also, since many ancient inscriptions have
missing text, the bracket keys (upper case "9" and "0") have been used for
brackets so that reconstructed text can be set off from certain text.
Each letter appears on the appropriate key both in the lower and upper
case. A balance has been sought between using the letter forms most common
to a particular inscription and showing the variety of letter forms that
appear in it. In some cases this has proven particularly difficult due to
the number of letters and shapes employed by an ancient scribe. Letters
that do not occur in an inscription have usually been reconstructed in
hollow letter form to set them off.
