Browser Issues with Greek Language
Last update 05.09.2005

You may experience problems viewing some pages which include translations into Greek language. The Latin characters will display properly but the Greek text will be scrambled showing boxes, dashes and curls.

This problem can be easily solved by setting up your browser to accept Greek based pages if this has not been done already. It is best to ask your system administrator to set it up for you. Here are some basic instructions to set it up yourself.

Εάν διαβάζετε αυτό το κείμενο στα Ελληνικά, τότε το σύστημα σας είναι ρυθμισμένο σωστά και δεν χρειάζεται καμία άλλη ρύθμιση.
