In the PDF that I'm reading from, there's a short phrase in Greek. I've copied the image of the phrase to a jpg, but how can I display it in a post in the LV forum for help with pronunciation, please?

You'd need to host the picture somewhere and then there is the little button with the image of an hill and the sun, that is for images. You put the url between the tags that appear when you press that button.

Alternately, if you are on windows, you can use the Character Map to type out a phrase in Greek, then copy and paste it here. You can find it under the System tools or accessories in the Start menu. I imagine there is a similar option for Mac users.

Thanks, Jo; I did start to type it in from the Character Map, but I couldn't find that letter that looks like a script "v", so I gave up.

I found also that Google Translate allows you to type the phrase using Latin characters and it will try to guess the correct spelling in the language you select. I typed in "De limw apollymai" and GT suggested "Δε λιμω απολλυμι", after which I just add 'a' before the last letter (and pick "translate instead" below). And there is also a choice of Greek keyboard or even scribbling...

Transliteration is, according to http://gr.translit.cc/
De limps apollymai
but don't ask me how to pronounce it :)
