thank you for your comments, but this does not fit with what I
in the *BODY* of the text *EVERYTHING* is fine with the greek
characters, whatever font I choose (Palatino, Helvetica,
It is *ONLY* in the *TITLES* that I have problems.
So I do not think it is an inherent problem with the fonts.
Because even if Helvetica does not cover the greek alphabet,
the docbook 1.62.0 stylesheet generated fo code should tell
XEP to fall back on other fonts (which seems to work fine for
the body of the text):
My feeling is rather that maybe XEP does not honour these
settings for titles for some reason ???
Any hints on this are greatly appreciated,
