Thread: Viewing Textual Criticism Info in Linux

    Default Viewing Textual Criticism Info in Linux

    I have had no problem viewing the various resource databases with KchmViewer in Linux. For example in A Textual Commentary On
    The Greek New Testament all Greek text and sigla are viewed properly. However, I downloaded both mantext.chm and mantext2.chm from http://www.laparola.net/greco/bibleworks.php and the Greek text is garbage. See example:
    Mat 1:2 (Mnster)
    Ἰσαάκ, Ἰσαὰκ δὲ] B Byz ς WH
    Ἰσακ, Ἰσακ] *א*
    Ἰούδαν] *א B Byz ς WH
    Ἰουδα] K

    Note that the sigla is readable.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Does anyone know what Greek font he is using? This seems like a useful resource if readable.

    pasquale,
    Thanks for the quick reply. I have Palatino Linotype installed as I have a licensed copy of Win 2000. I didn't think the font would really matter if it was Unicode. I am running Mepis 8.0 based on Debian Lenny so my KchmViewer is 3.1-2 so I will look into 4.1. Thanks again.
