LaserGreek® in Unicode™ provides professional-quality, Unicode-encoded Greek fonts in TrueType® OpenType® format for Biblical and classical (polytonic) and modern (monotonic) Greek. The Greek fonts include all standard accents, breathing marks, iota subscripts and diereses used in Biblical and classical Greek. Because the LaserGreek in Unicode (hereafter LaserGreekU) fonts include separate composite forms of each vowel with each diacritic combination, every letter shape and diacritic position is perfectly positioned, including the iota subscript directly below the left leg of the eta. Omegas and alphas, with or without diacritics, are wider than in our older non-Unicode-encoded LaserGreek and LaserGreek II Greek fonts, and iotas are narrower. (See below for a comparison of non-Unicode SymbolGreek II with the new SymbolGreekU and SymbolGreekTU Greek fonts.) The LaserGreekU fonts are distinctive in that they also include the Nestle-Aland, UBS, Leiden, many TLG text-critical symbols and sigla, extra characters for epigraphical and textual studies, and arrows for indicating papyrus grain direction. In addition, eleven of the fonts (SymbolGreekMetU, SymbolGreekTMetU, GraecaUBSMetU, OdysseaU, OdysseaUBSU, HellenicaU, HellenicaCU, and the four TeubnerLSU fonts) also include metrical long and short marks with all breathing marks and accents. The four TeubnerLSU fonts also include 78 special characters not included in any other of the fonts. All the Greek fonts also include superscript and subscript numbers, the Latin 1 character set and additional Latin characters and diacritics covering many other languages.
