Have another look at greek.el. The first set of rules,
which you will probably see in a big font, is the greek-jis input
method, which creates characters in a Japanese charset that includes
the Greek alphabet. After that, there's a second set of rules, which
creates characters in the ISO-8859-7 charset, i.e. real Greek. These
are, indeed, displayed in a rather small font on my systems.
Right, I was not careful enough you are right, why isn't greek-jis used
When you cut'n'paste from Wikipedia, the characters are in
and they get converted to native MULE charsets according to your
settings. As far as I know, the 21.4 mule-ucs prefers greek to jisx,
so I'm a bit surprised that you see large fonts by cutting and
pasting. (Incidentally, vanilla 21.4 doesn't support cut'n'paste in
unicode, so I guess you must be using Aidan's utf-8 cut'n'paste code?)
Have you done anything to make Japanese a preferred language?
Hm I am using Kubuntu 8.04 and the precompiled version. May be the
Ubuntu/Debian developers included that code?
The right answer is to change your greek font to one you prefer.
Using the JISX characters is not the right answer!
Why? Why can't I used them for display, and why can't I use them within
yes I did that but the result is rather ugly, I'd say.
