Choosing Fonts in TLG

The TLG works with Greek-specific fonts as well as unicode fonts. Upon entering the site, the user is asked how to display and enter Greek texts. The best practice is to choose unicode fonts, as this will allow easy typing into the system and easy copying and pasting from the system.
