Convert Greek beta code to Greek characters and vice versa.
This extension converts Greek beta code into Greek Unicode, and vice versa, adding a converter to the top right corner of the browser. Greek characters typed into the text box are transliterated into the equivalent beta code characters; conversely, beta code is converted into the corresponding Greek Unicode. Beta code is a system for encoding ancient Greek text using ASCII characters. It is used by certain websites (for example, the Perseus Digital Library or The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae) to search through texts or look up individual words. For more information about beta code see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_Code and/or http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/encoding/quickbeta.pdf. This extension is built on free and open source software.
