The Galatia SIL Greek Unicode Fonts are a new version of the SIL Galatia font
released by SIL in 1997.
The Latin-1 codepage ("A-Z", "a-z" plus some punctuation, etc.) is included in
the font. This is to assist with viewing Latin or Roman text. The Macintosh
character set for US Roman and the 850 WE/Latin-1 encodings are also included.
Polytonic Greek is supported but Coptic is not. There is no automatic formation
of the final sigma.
