Template:Greek/doc

This template uses the Universal Language Selector extension to provide the following functions:

  1. Uses the lang HTML global attribute to identify the text's language as Ancient Greek (grc).
  2. Provides a series of appropriate web fonts for displaying the Greek characters.

Note: This template is used for Greek text that uses monotonic orthography. Greek text that uses polytonic orthography should be placed in the template {{Polytonic}} instead. For more information on monotonic vs. polytonic orthography, see w:Greek diacritics.

Usage[edit]
