Dear Humanist,
I am interested in publication quality fonts that have a full unicode
set and wondering if anyone can help me.
I am about to send in a manuscript to the University of Chicago Press
that uses Greek (polysytonic), Hebrew, and standard Hebrew diacriticals
for transliteration, i.e., hamza, ayin, underdots etc.
Can anyone recommend really attractive fonts that I might be able to
suggest to the Press.

Dear colleagues and friends:

(Apologies for cross-postings. Please feel free to forward to
colleagues, students and other discussion fora.)

Please send me ( information about digital projects,
publications and computer-aided research in epigraphy. This information
will be used to update or inform multiple resources including:

* The "ASGLE links" resource (currently out of date):

* A section on "digital epigraphy" in the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of
Latin Epigraphy

I am interested in any undertaking that involves computational
approaches or digital data, whether it has resulted in publication or
not. Any subdiscipline of epigraphy (Latin, Greek, other) is of interest.

The ASGLE links update will include a software upgrade, and will be
carried out in collaboration with the editorial board of Current
Epigraphy ( and the leadership and
appropriate committees of the Association Internationale d' Épigraphie
Grecque et Latine and of the American Society of Greek and Latin
Epigraphy. All information presented in the resulting "new" links
collection will be released to the public under terms of a Creative
Commons Attribution license so that it can be re-used freely by others.
All information sent to me will be assumed to be the intellectual
property of the person submitting it, and will be treated under terms of
the CC license.

Ideally, I would like to have as much of the following information as
possible (please feel free to use your native language):

Title of project, resource or publication
Principal investigator(s), author(s) or editor(s)
Intitutional affiliation(s)
URLs for websites
Publication citation(s)
A short description
Status (e.g., experimental, complete, published, in progress,
continuing, private)
Technologies, methodologies used
Sources of funding (past and present)
Contact email address

Thank you for your assistance in this endeavor.
