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
 theta		j
 chi		q
 omega		v
 phi		y


 '	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?
