Dear all,

I am trying to get a few words in Greek in an English-language document. I use MiKTeX 2.5, 'as is' (no local modifications; I have no idea how to do that).

The minimal example:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage[greek,english]{babel}
\languageattribute{greek}{polutoniko}

\begin{document}

The sequence \foreignlanguage{polutonikogreek}{abgdezhjiklmnxoprsctufqyw}
was created by:\footnote{This does not yet work in footnotes: \foreignlanguage{polutonikogreek}{abgdezhjiklmnxoprsctufqyw}.}
\verb&\foreignlanguage{polutonikogreek}{abgdezhjiklmnxoprsctufqyw}&

\end{document}

works fine, except that the footnote comes out in Latin script, rather than (partially) in Greek. What do I do wrong?
