Unicode Polytonic Greek
for the World Wide Web

Version 0.9.7


W3C Amaya

Amaya is a web browser/editor being developed by a small team at the World Wide Web Consortium as a demonstration of some of the Consortium's recommendations and how they can be put into practice.

Amaya also includes some support for XML with CSS style sheets, MathML, SVG, and Annotea, a method for providing reader annotations to web pages.

Amaya is available for Windows, and for most operating systems which can use XFree86 and Motif. There are also a number of other versions of Amaya for other graphics libraries (an Open GL version, a GTK version). While Amaya can not run in Macintosh OS 9 or in the Aqua environment of OS X, it can run on OS X with an X server (the best way to install this is with Fink). For editing and viewing Greek text, however, I would wait a few more versions for an Amaya that supports the Unicode Greek and extended Greek ranges.
