That "ancient Greek is not a true superset [of modern Greek]; modern
Greek contains <character><tonos> where ancient Greek would contain
<character><oxeîa>, <character><bareîa> or character><perispōménē>"
because "tonos and oxia /look/ the same; search a file for
character+oxia when the file has been created with character+tonos and
the former will not be found" when "the search utility or editor do not
take canonical equivalence into account".

I would have thought that that would have been obvious if you had been
following the thread.
