On Thu, 17 Jul 2003 11:53:05 +0100, rumours say that Alan Kennedy

><verb>&#x3b3;&#x3af;&#x3b3;&#x3bd;&#x3c9;&#x3c3;&#x3ba;&#x3c9;</verb>
>#---------

if I may... that should be

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<verb>&#x3b3;&#x3b9;&#x3b3;&#x3bd;&#x3ce;&#x3c3;&#x3ba;&#x3c9;</verb>

since a word ending in a long syllable could never have an accent in the
third syllable from the end (that still applies in modern greek).
