    Thank you so much for the quick reply! I didn't know that Cardo had all the apparatus Characters, too. I am going to try using that font more.

    Hey Mark, I noticed that I don't have the Cardo font installed on my system; it is not listed as one of the available fonts in MS Office Word 2003 anyway. Is there a website from which I may download the Cardo font? And will it work on a system running Windows XP?

    If it's any consolation, I'm not Mark either. Thanks Brian.

    Opps typo! I used a double negative! There was only supposed to be one "no" rather than " not not". No offense to people with the name Mark.

    Thanks for all the answers. I should have looked in BHS, but as I am used in using Bible Works, I don't look much in the print-version anymore ;-) I am not familiair to working with unicode fonts (I use the bibleworks font most of the time). Can I just install cardo (or the like), type the ID516 code en press ALT+X?

    If you only need an occasional Greek character, then that works fine. (But it's 1D516 not ID516.) If you need to do more typing in Greek/Hebrew, then you really need to install Unicode keyboards or get Tavultesoft's Keyman or use an online "Greek inputter" or Logos' Shibboleth or check here.
