Thanks to all for the replies.
My fault for not being clearer. What I was asking was this: in an environment with
gfsporson selected, what do I need to type to get TeX to produce appropriate output?
For instance, I've discovered that you get rough breathing in such an environment by
preceding a vowel with "<" (so "<o" gives you "ho"). Trial and error has got me 90%
of what I need to know. At the moment, I'm still stumped about what I need to type to
get a circumflex... "\^" doesn't work.
In case anyone wants to know, here is what I've discovered so far:
final sigma c
' acute over following letter
` grave over following letter
< rough breathing over following letter
> smooth breathing over following letter
| iota-subscript under following letter
Combine the above for multiple diacriticals: <`|v = grave rough omega with iota-subscript
Any ideas about the circumflex?
