Is it possible to have Greek and Latin characters in one Version? I think not. This would be a useful addition for the future. This would allow to add textual commentaries to BW as a version. One could have BGT or some other Greek text as the top version and the next version could be a commentary.
I could think of something similar to the HTML language like <GREEK> </GREEK>. Are there plans for this?

I totally agree with Wieland. It would be a tremendous asset to BW to have this added feature!

Yes! It would be wonderful if Greek & Hebrew could be supported along with Latin.

Wieland,

One thing you may want to consider, if you are itching to get a commentary ready for Bibleworks, is to format your commentary as end notes in an English based version database. If you enclose the notes at the end of each verse, enclosed in brackets, you can use a similar coding to what you mentioned. You can then format Greek, Hebrew, bolded Greek, wingdings, transliteration fonts, etc., and then they will show up in the auto info window for each verse. So...one could conceivably give a Latin character commentary with technical notes showing up only in the auto info window. Of course, a simple transliteration can be used in the actual verses! In the screenshot below I used the above method to format notes in a textual commentary for Old Testament uses of the New Testament (a Summer project)...

Here are the codes for different fonts in the notes:

<b>...</b> bolded test
<i>...</i> italicized text
<h>...</h> Hebrew text
<g>...</g> Greek text
<gb>...</gb> bolded Greek text
<sup>...</sup> superscripted text
<sub>...</sub> subscripted text
<ee>...</ee> Eastern European text
<sym>...</sym> bwsymbol.ttf font text
<cyr>...</cyr> Cyrillic text
<wing>...</wing> Wingdings text
<p> inserts a line break

What exactly does 'Eastern European' mean in the fonts? Which characters are available? How do you type them in a text file???
