A serious question: why would one want to do this? Why not just use
Unicode and enter the appropriate characters?

For instance, if you look at
and examine the source (you will need a text editor that handles
Unicode and view with a Unicode-type font), you will see that I've
entered the polytonic Greek text directly into the markup which is
then rendered on the page -- just like using Latin characters.
