On Thu, 15 Feb 2007, Apostolos Syropoulos submitted the XeLaTeX package


to CTAN.

This package has been designed so to allow people to typeset Greek 
language documents using XeLaTeX. And it is released in the hope that 
people will use it and spot errors, bugs, features so to improve it. 
Practically, it provides all the capabilities of the greek option of the 
babel package. The package can be invoked with any of the following 
options: monotonic (for typesetting modern monotonic Greek), polytonic 
(for typesetting modern polytonic Greek), and ancient (for typesetting 
ancient texts). The default option is monotonic. The command 
\setlanguage{lang} to activate the hyphenation patterns of the lang.  
This, however, can be done only if the format file has not been built with 
the babel mechanism.

The package is beta software and it is hoped that users will provide input 
so to improve it.
