I have uploaded to CTAN a new version of the xgreek package. This version works with the standard XeLaTeX format file. However, it expects a format built with all three different hyphenation patterns for the Greek language. A XeLaTeX format file should be built with language.dat file that should contain at least the following
The various loadhyph-xxxx.tex files can be found at following URL
and the actual hyphenation patterns are available from
To select a language one should use the \setlanguage command. This command takes one argument which the name of a language as specified in the first column of language.dat. Note the greek is not a supported argument. Instead use polygreek. The package includes a new command \atticnum, which transforms its argument (the value of a counter or a number) to the corresponding acrophonic Attic numeral. In the future we plan to make this command to print the date in the Attic calendar, when the ancientgreek is set.
