:Abstract:  This package provides input encoding definition
            files for Greek for use with inputenc_.


:May 2013: * new maintainer.
           * Unicode support with the standard "utf8" option.


  Greek input encoding file for UTF-8 comprising Greek letters and other
  symbols present in the LGR encoding.

  This file requires ``lgrenc.def`` version 0.8.2 or newer from the
  greek-fontenc_ package.

  The literate source was converted with PyLit_ to reStructuredText_ and
  with Docutils_ to `<lgrenc.dfu.html>`_.

  Greek input encoding file for `ISO 8859-7`_ by Apostolos Syropoulos.

  Greek input encoding file for Macintosh (ELOT 823) by Dimitrios Filippou.

Test examples and output:
  :utf-8:      `<test-utf8.tex>`_, `<test-utf8.pdf>`_ (comprehensive example)
  :iso 8859-7: `<test-iso-8859-7.tex>`_, `<test-iso-8859-7.pdf>`_ (basic test)

.. [#transliteration] Currently, these files translate to a Latin
   transcription particular to the LGR font encoding. Drawbacks include:
   Latin characters in PDF strings (hyperref_ bookmarks and TOC sidebar, cf.
   greekhyperref.pdf__), no kerning between accented characters.



If possible, get this package from your distribution using its installation

Otherwise, make sure LaTeX can find the files ending in ``.def``:

* Download and unpack `` or just download the required

* Copy, move, or link the files to a suitable place in the `TeX Directory
  Structure` (TDS_) and run ``texhash``, or place them in the current working
  directory (e.g. for testing).


Pass the encoding name as option to inputenc_.

The "utf8" option only defines characters that are accessible in declared
font encodings. In order to load the Greek definitions in ``lgrenc.dfu``,
specify the LGR font encoding with fontenc_ or the "greek" option for
babel_, e.g. ::


or ::


See `test-utf8.tex`_ for an example.
