Question 2, about Mac OS localization

Q: Macintosh users in other European countries have the possibility of using the Mac Os X localized in their maternal language. Do I have this possibility also in Greece but without extra fee?
A: Sorry, this is not possible. You have to pay for this and for each and every mac you buy!

I was born and raised in Greece but for the past 25 years I’ve lived in the US. I’ve always used Macs.

I support the greek localization project and I congratulate you for your efforts.

However my personal needs are much less ambitious and forgive me if this is the wrong place to raise them. 95% of what I do is in English so I wouldn’t want to change the OS on my computer to Greek.

All I’m trying to do is WRITE Greek. I used to be able to in 0S9 but not in OSX. I can read greek on websites just fine which tells me I must have the necessary fonts but when I try to fill out a form on the web or write an e-mail, my letters come out in latin. Even after I change the keyboard in the menu bar to Greek. I use the latest versions of Firefox, Safari, Thunderbird, Apple Mail and Tiger.

Could you please point me to a link that addresses this issue? I consider myself a sophisticated computer user but this issue has me stumped for years.

Support for the Greek language (read and write) is in Mac OS X by default.
The only you need for writing in Greek is Greek fonts.
These are available in the web in many places.
For example,

or

or
http://www.in.gr/grfonts.htm

Please let me know if it helped you.
