Thanks for the advice, and I looked at the website for the journal
and it would appear they want a paper submission anyway, so I suppose
for now the font is moot other than looking correct and nice. There
is an email contact given, so I will enquire as to what is expected
on the electronic side. It really does sound though that there is no
standard, accepted Greek font out there, so I guess as you suggest
one has to check with each journal to see the requirements. In this
case I really do need to quote the Greek in some cases, given the
nature of what I am doing.
At least I am not having to reproduce Egyptian hieroglyphics - which
I cannot read anyway - though some of the articles I am quoting do.
