The Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) is an organization of linguists dedicated to the study and promotion of the thousands of languages around the world. SIL’s International Publishing Services serves SIL by developing products to assist in the publication of linguistic texts.
These fonts were originally developed to meet the needs and restrictions of in-house development projects, and so, may not adequately address the more generalized need for Biblical Greek computing solutions or be applicable in all situations. Nevertheless, we are happy to make this package available to the general academic community at no charge. You may (and are encouraged to) share these fonts and utilities with your friends and co-workers, but with the following restrictions:
Even though these fonts are freely distributable, SIL retains all copyright and ownership of the included fonts and utilities and reserves the right to restrict their use and distribution at any time. They may be placed on bulletin boards, etc. but cannot be included in (or bundled with) any commercial product including hard disks or CD-ROMs without specific written permission.
