I struggled with the Greek question for awhile -- some users in English
are savvy enough to run Greek on their browsers, there are plug-ins,
etc. but in my desire to provide the least difficulty and stay with a
low common denominator of browsers, I've resorted to simply scanning the
Greek bits and popping them in as Compuserve GIF links. On a white
background, almost convincing. There are several examples in Collins'
Odes: <http://darkwing.uoregon.edu/~rbear/collins/collins1.html>.

If you can type out the Greek text in a word processor, you can probably
by some device capture an image of the text, i.e. a GIF, and insert that
in the spot on your Web Page, but it is beyond my expertise to deal with
Web Publishing or posting to a page.  If you have a Mac, I might be able
to help.

"Can anybody tell me how to add Greek characters to a web page
preferably in a way that most browsers can handle without plug-ins or
add-ons)?  Johnson's Notes contain two brief quotations in Greek, which
I have so far been forced to replace with the phrase "[Greek words]" in
square brackets - a most unsatisfactory solution.  Any advice would be
gratefully received."

Follow this link for some Greek fonts and for help displaying them.  And
don't forget to retrieve some sort of style guide,  so that you can
insert all the diacriticals.
