Greek Keyboard

I am doing Greek 1 at UKZN this semester. I have already done an introductory Greek course, so I don't expect to struggle for the first few weeks. However, I'd like to do Greek 2 and I don't think my introductory Greek will get me there. Fun. I am going to enjoy it.
Do you know that 'nike' means victory (or to win, not sure exactly) in Greek and 'nika' means give in Zulu? I might be well mixed up by the end of the semester!
Part of the fun is that I want to put Greek practice exercises on our internal website. But how to get Greek to display in html? It's not just a matter of fonts! I am now working with Greek keyboard layouts . . . I think I am winning. Just how do you get those little breathing marks in the right place?
I am learning stuff in seminary - and I think it is useful - but probably nobody would have planned it in a curriculum. Which I think says good things about the flexibility here.

I have to be careful not to make Freudian slips in my typing, don't I?
