Message 1: Mac font for Latin vowels

Subject: Mac font for Latin vowels


Does anyone in here know of a font, preferably Macintosh, which is
capable of producing the five vowels in upper-case with the
traditional symbols for long and short realization, i.e. the macron
for long and the "dipped macron" for short? The phonetics fonts, and
Graeca, which I have tried cannot add diacritics to upper-case
letters. I would be most grateful for assistance.

Fellow linguists,

Could anyone out there please tell me of any references regarding
computers and their effect on children's language?

Thanks.

Do any of you know if it is possible to purchase Keil's VII, or VIII,
vol. (depending on the printing) Grammatici Latini? That is,
assuming someone in this group is interested in Classical Linguistics
and has worked with these gems. If you require more information, e.g.,
publisher, date of pub (186?), etc., I can get back to you with that.
I happen to have forgotten that info and don't have my bibliography
available. Although, I think the publisher in one in Leipzig.

Thank you, Robert B. Colasacco
