[texhax] GFS Porson polytonic keymap?

Greetings Peter,

I type in polytonic Greek by using the GreekKeys Unicode keymapping  
for OS X.  GreekKeys is available here: http://apagreekkeys.org/AboutGKU.html 
  ... I believe that the 2008 version also is available for Windows.

My .tex files, therefore, are in Unicode (UTF-8) encoding.  I use the  
XeLaTeX engine for typesetting, in order to take advantage of the  
LaTeX extensions, but the plain-vanilla XeTeX (available at http://www.tug.org/xetex/ 
  , for OS X and with a port to Windows) should provide you with a way  
to directly process UTF-8 encoded TeX files.

As a result, my .tex files include Unicode polytonic Greek characters  
directly, which I type in using the GreekKeys keyboard configuration;  
Porson gets used as the output font, which I select using the Fontspec  
package (available only under XeTeX, alas).

I've attached a sample .tex file and the corresponding PDF output, so  
you can see how I set things up.
