RE: Unicode font for Mac?

        Are there language packs available for some of the charsets in
ISO-8859-1 through 9 range such as Greek as is asked below? Or are
scripts covering those only available through the localized OS? Or is
support expected some other way?

        As far as I know, no language scripts are installed on the
        machine I tested on. I looked at the page:

        Language kits for the following 7 languages are available
        at an approximate cost of $900 total (+tax +shipping):

          Arabic & Persian

        I am interested in supporting at least ISO-8859-1 through 9,
        and it looks like some needed language packs may not be
        available. What do I do about Greek? Do I really have to
        pay $900+ because I want to test my HTML for other languages?
        Why isn't the converted Cyberbit enough (at least for NS 4.01)?
        I did not see any mention of Unicode anywhere on the page.
