License type: lppl Announcement text:
as a consequence of a very kind mail of Claudio Beccari, I've decided to enable the user to choose between to encoding' for greek alphabet and therefore paresse has two new mutually exclusive options: legacy' (default, same as preceding version) and `Levi' to use Sylvio Levi's greek encoding.

## paresse – Define simple macros for greek letters

The package defines macros using § to type greek letters so that the user may (for example) type §a to get the effect of $\alpha$. However, it takes care only of letters which have a macro name like \alpha or \Omega.
