SBL Biblical Languages Fonts
For many years I (with many others) used the old Scholars’ Press fonts for Greek, Hebrew and other languages, but the problem was that these were not “unicode” fonts. So, they often didn’t transfer well from one computing platform to another. Then a few years ago, the Society of Biblical Literature (working with a number of other bodies) brought out new unicode fonts for Greek and Hebrew: http://www.sbl-site.org/educational/biblicalfonts.aspx.
I’ve now pretty much moved over to these fonts, having used them in several essays written during 2011. But I have to say that one complication is getting used to the keyboard. With the old SP fonts, I found the keyboard fairly intuitive. But for the new unicode fonts, I have to keep to hand printed sheets reminding me how to get accents and breathing marks in Greek. And I find the Hebrew keyboard even more difficult to figure out.
The Greek keyboard I chose is this one: http://www.jcu.edu/language/llc/keyboard-setup-greek.htm.
For Hebrew, I downloaded the “SIL” keyboard, link here: http://www.sbl-site.org/educational/BiblicalFonts_SBLHebrew.aspx
If others have any advice, tricks, simplications, let the rest of us know!
