Greek and Coptic

U+0370 – U+03FF   (880–1023)

The Greek script is used for the Greek language, which belongs to the Indo-European group and is the national language of Greece. Greek letters are also widely used as symbols in scientific and technical documents. Additional characters, including the polytonic characters needed for classical Greek, can be found in the Greek Extended range. You can find some real (non-Unicode) Greek text to try at http://www.microsoft.com/hellas/ and Rainbow Computer. You can see some Unicode Greek on the What is Unicode? in Greek page and the OHCHR: Greek Universal Declaration of Human Rights page.

In version 4.1 of the Unicode standard, a separate range was established for Coptic, but the 14 specifically Coptic characters included in the Greek and Coptic range are also needed for a complete implementation of Coptic.

If you want to convert Greek in older formats into Greek Unicode, Sean Redmond has produced a Greek Font to Unicode Converter that works with Beta Code, GreekKeys, ISO 8859-7 and WinGreek. Fingertip Software Inc. produces Character Set Converter, which runs under Windows and can convert Unicode Greek to and from Windows, Macintosh and DOS Greek character sets.

Characters 900–906, 908 and 910–974 are present in Microsoft’s WGL4 character set, and are therefore included in Microsoft’s core fonts for Windows (Arial, Courier New and Times New Roman). Characters 937 and 960 provide Unicode equivalents for two of the characters in Apple’s MacRoman character set. Characters 913–937, 945–969, 977, 978, 981 and 982 provide Unicode equivalents for some of the characters in Monotype’s Symbol font. Users of Internet Explorer 5 for Windows can choose to install the Pan-European update to enable them to view Greek Web pages.

Unicode Greek is supported by Microsoft Windows from Windows 95 onwards, and by Macintosh OS X 10.

Greek Web pages are supported by Internet Explorer 4 (or higher), Netscape Navigator 4 (or higher), Mozilla and Opera 6 (or higher) under Windows 95 (or higher). Mac OS 9 does not include a Language Kit for Greek, but Internet Explorer 4 (or higher), Netscape Navigator 4 (but not 6 or 7) and iCab 2 under Mac OS 9 can use Greek characters from the Symbol font to display Greek Unicode characters. It is possible to install Greek fonts intended for earlier versions of Mac OS for viewing some non-Unicode Greek Web pages.

The characters that appear in the first column of the following table depend on the browser that you are using, the fonts installed on your computer, and the browser options you have chosen that determine the fonts used to display particular character sets, encodings or languages. The entries in the “Entity” column are character entity references that can be used in HTML pages.

To see exactly which characters are included in a particular font, you can use a utility such as Andrew West’s BabelMap, Apple’s TrueEdit, or WunderMoosen’s FontChecker.

If you are not familiar with the characters, you can check the characters displayed here with the graphical display at http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0370.pdf.
