Punctuating Eph 2:14b-15a

[FINAL UPDATE: Thanks to this, I am now able to display Greek unicode on the blog.  See actual Greek characters below where there used to be a bunch of ????s. Unfortunately, I spent too much time trying to figure out how to display Greek that I am not sure I will have time to do the original post I had planned.  We’ll see how the day goes.]

==============================

I had in mind to write a post discussing the punctuation issue of this section of Eph 2. I typed out the section using Unicode. It looked fine in my blog editor. But, when I posted to the blog, this is what I got:

καὶ τὸ μεσότοιχον τοῦ φραγμοῦ λύσας τὴν ἔχθραν ἐν τῇ σαρκὶ αὐτοῦ τὸν νόμον τῶν ἐντολῶν ἐν δόμασιν καραργήσας

It was keyed in as follows:

kai; to; mesovtoicon tou: fragmou: luvsaV th;n e[cqran ejn th:/ sarki; aujtou: to;n novmon tw:n ejntolw:n ejn dovgmasin katarghvsaV

Does anyone have an idea of what the problem is? I’m not a techno geek, but I’m not a complete neophyte. I am a bit frustrated.

STAY TUNED

UPDATE:

I’ve tried everything I know how. I followed the advice from Mike (see comments). Still no luck. Is there anybody who can help? Is it a theme issue? I can type and display Greek everywhere else on my computer (mail, word processor, blog editor). Greek even shows up when viewing other people’s blogs. What do I have to do to get it on mine?

I use Logos’ Biblical Greek keyboard when I’m typing in Greek, but generally I’ve always copied and pasted straight from the NA27 in Logos to wordpress.

But the tags that they put in when I copy are:

span lang=”el”>span style=”font-family: Gentium”>

/span>/span>

I wasn’t sure whether the tags would disappear if I left everything in, so the initial “<” of each tag has been taken out.

Let me know if it works.

Thanks, Mike. Unfortunately, I’m still getting question marks. I’m at a loss!

I’m testing some of mine…

I don’t know if it’ll work and if it does, I have no clue why.

Thanks for trying, Mike. I see question marks. I’m wondering if a theme change will help. This is the second theme in which I’ve tried to use Greek. Neither one works. Kind of makes it hard to be a serious NT blogger without Greek, doesn’t it?

I’m glad you got it worked out. I check this particular theme on my blog and it worked fine. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that my blog is a .wordpress.com blog and you have your own domain name and are using the wordpress software.

I hope you find time to actually write your post. I always enjoying reading your posts on Ephesians.
