Unicode Polytonic Greek
for the World Wide Web

Version 0.9.7

D R A F T

Windows 2000 Professional

Installing the Browser

Windows 2000 comes with the Internet Explorer 5.0 web browser.

For those of you who do prefer Netscape products, you may already have a version of Netscape capable of reading Unicode Polytonic Greek: Netscape 4.x (which is to say, Netscape 4.0, 4.5, 4.6, and 4.7). If you have a version of Netscape higher than 4.5, you should be relatively ok. If you don't, consider upgrading to Netscape 4.76 or Netscape 6.

If you do prefer Netscape products but have a version of Netscape earlier than 4.5, I would strongly suggest that you download Netscape 4.76. If you're adventurous, try Netscape 6.1: though still a work in progress, it is now stable enough for everyday use. You can go to the Netscape website and click the "Download" link to download the latest versions of Netscape (6.0 was released on 14 November 2000).

With all the versions of Netscape after 4.5, all you need to view webpages in Unicode is the main browser.

Finally, you can install Mozilla, the open source browser upon which Netscape is based, currently being developed by Netscape in cooperation with an open-source community, by downloading the installation version (installer.exe) for Windows from http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/release-notes/. Note, though, that Mozilla is beta-quality software - it is more advanced than Netscape 6, and lacks some of the annoying bells and whistles (like AOL Instant Messenger, though it does have the e-mail and composer clients), but it is less stable, and each daily build introduces new features and new bugs. Mozilla is not for the faint of heart.
