lgrenc.dfu

Greek in­put en­cod­ing file for UTF-8 com­pris­ing Greek let­ters and other sym­bols present in the LGR en­cod­ing.

This file re­quires lgrenc.def ver­sion 0.8.2 or newer from the greek-fontenc pack­age.

The lit­er­ate source was con­verted with PyLit to reStruc­turedText and with Do­cu­tils to lgrenc.dfu.html.

iso-8859-7.def

Greek in­put en­cod­ing file for ISO 8859-7 by Apos­to­los Sy­ropou­los.1

mac­greek.def

Greek in­put en­cod­ing file for Mac­in­tosh (ELOT 823) by Dim­itrios Filip­pou.1

Test ex­am­ples and out­put:

greek-utf8.tex, greek-utf8.pdf (com­pre­hen­sive ex­am­ple)

(1, 2)

Cur­rently, these files trans­late to a Latin tran­scrip­tion par­tic­u­lar to the LGR font en­cod­ing. Draw­backs in­clude: Latin char­ac­ters in PDF strings (hy­per­ref book­marks and TOC side­bar, cf. greekhy­per­ref.pdf), no kern­ing be­tween ac­cented char­ac­ters.

In­stal­la­tion

If pos­si­ble, get this pack­age from your dis­tri­bu­tion us­ing its in­stal­la­tion man­ager.

Other­wise, make sure LaTeX can find the files end­ing in .def :

  • Down­load and un­pack greek-in­pu­tenc.zip or just down­load the re­quired file(s).

  • Copy, move, or link the files to a suit­able place in the TeX Direc­tory Struc­ture (TDS) and run tex­hash , or place them in the cur­rent work­ing di­rec­tory (e.g. for test­ing).

Usage

Pass the en­cod­ing name as op­tion to in­pu­tenc.

The “utf8” op­tion only de­fines char­ac­ters that are ac­ces­si­ble in de­clared font en­cod­ings. In or­der to load the Greek def­i­ni­tions in lgrenc.dfu , spec­ify the LGR font en­cod­ing with fontenc, the “greek” op­tion for ba­bel, or both, e.g.

\usepackage[LGR,T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

or

\usepackage[greek,english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

See greek-utf8.tex for an ex­am­ple.

Warn­ing

LGR is no “stan­dard font en­cod­ing”. Latin char­ac­ters and some other ASCII sym­bols are mapped to Greek equiv­a­lents if LGR is the ac­tive font en­cod­ing. (See us­age.pdf for a de­scrip­tion of this Latin-Greek translit­er­a­tion.)

This means you need an ex­plicit font-en­cod­ing switch for Latin words and ab­bre­vi­a­tions in Greek text, e.g., not \for­eign­lan­guage{greek}{((ηία αντίσταση 750-kΩ))} but \for­eign­lan­guage{greek}{((ηία αντίσταση 750-\text­latin{k}Ω))} .

Spe­cial care is also re­quired with the ques­tion mark char­ac­ters: While the Uni­code stan­dard says char­ac­ter 003B SEMICOLON (and not 037E) is the pre­ferred char­ac­ter for Greek ques­tion mark’, the LGR font en­cod­ing maps it to a mid­dle dot (ano teleia), while the Latin ques­tion mark is mapped to the ero­ti­matiko. As a re­sult, only the dep­re­cated char­ac­ter “037E GREEK QUESTION MARK` works with both, Xe/LuaTeX and 8-bit TeX.
