Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The greektonoi mapping extends the betababel package or the babel 
polutonikogreek option to provide a simple way to insert ancient
Greek texts with diacritical characters into your document
using a similar method to the commonly used Beta Code transliteration but 
with much more freedom. It is designed especially for \XeTeX
engine and it could also be used for fast and easy modification of 
monotonic greek texts to polytonic. The output text is natively
unicode so it can be reused
to any possible way. greektonoi.sty package provides, in addition  to 
inserting greek accents and breathings, many other symbols used
in greek numbers and arithmetic or in the greek archaic period. It could 
be used with greektonoi mapping or indepedently.
