Document Processing for Classical Languages by David Perry

This book is intended to help people who need to prepare high-quality documents using many languages or unusual characters. Written mainly from the perspective of scholars in fields such as Classics, Biblical Studies, Medieval Studies, and Linguistics, it will also be useful to anyone who deals with multilingual text. Editors and typesetters who work with authors in these fields will also find it helpful, even if they do not have a specialist's knowledge of the field. The book is divided into two parts. Part I describes what Unicode is and how it helps multilingual authors, how "smart fonts" such as OpenType work, what software is available that meets the needs of scholars, how to choose fonts for a project, and how to enter specialized characters not found on keyboards. Part II deals with the needs of scholars in various fields. Both Mac OS X(tm) and Microsoft Windows(tm) are covered, including Windows 7. The book is illustrated with many screen shots and includes a glossary of specialized terms.
