SIL Greek Font System Requirements
Galatia and Unicode
The SIL Greek Font System is a pre-Unicode or “legacy” font system which was originally released by SIL in 1998. These fonts have been superceded by Unicode-encoded Greek fonts, such as Galatia SIL or Gentium — a typeface for the nations.

The Windows package requires Windows 3.1 or later. The Macintosh package requires System 7 or later.
A number of additional utilities enhance the usefulness of the SIL Greek Font System. Note that none of these are included in the general package and must be downloaded separately.
SIL Apparatus (Obsolete)
Fonts containing a wide range of text critical marks. The SIL Apparatus Fonts were designed to provide most of the symbols needed to reproduce the textual apparatus found in major editions of Greek & Hebrew biblical texts.
Keyman is a keyboard management utility that makes it practical to input many different languages in almost any Windows application. Keyman allows you to have arbitrarily long input sequences and to have diacritics typed after the base character.
SILKey for Macintosh
SILKey is a suite of programs that can be used to modify the behavior of the Macintosh keyboard when typing in any standard Macintosh word processor or other text-editing program. Written by Jonathan Kew, it is very similar to, but is not based on, the Keyman program for Windows.
