I extracted all the translations and I put to the attached file,
I selected several of them in "pango.txt" (attached) and I produced

- Hinting is funny in the Greek line - it looks fuzzy.
Indeed. I use the DejaVu font, which does not offer hinting currently for Greek.
Hinting for Greek in DejaVu is added these two weeks and I expect
that DejaVu 2.5 (mid-April) will be ok. I am not aware of any other
- Is line 19 right?
Line 19 is atrocious :(. It appears it uses glyphs from two different fonts.
