Working! Reading Homer's Iliad on the Cybook

It took me some four letter words this afternoon, but I have what I wanted: a mobipocket book with the (first 12 for now) books in ancient Greek of Homer's Iliad.

For a while I thought it wouldn't work, because I started out trying to get a text file to display Greek, but mobipocket does the job just fine.

Most pleased!


Groet,
Adelheid

This would be of great interest to me, Adelheid. Can you explain what you did, please?

Hi Harry,

I used a UTF-16 encoded source file (saved it to that encoding on a Mac). I uploaded the file to a Windows pc and imported it, using Mobipocket Creator Home Edition v4.2, and built the prc file.

I then placed it on my SD card in the Cybook. I also made sure to have a suitable font on the Cybook (called 'Gentium'). When I opened the book on the Cybook, at first boxes were displayed for various accented characters, but switching to the Gentium font made them all visible.

Groet,
Adelheid

Hmmm. Not me! What was it before?

I didn't mention that the Iliad I was reading was Homer's. That was me trying to be funny, given the existence of an ebook device called the Iliad.

As adelheid said you need a font that supports ancient greek. Modern greek is supported out of the box (the alphabet is the same, just much less word stress marks).
