+    <p>
+      Under the influence of the neoclassical ideals of the late 18th century, the
+      famous French typecutter Firmin Didot in Paris designed a new Greek typeface
+      (1805) which was immediately used in the publishing programme of Adamantios
+      Korai, the prominent intellectual figure of the Greek diaspora and leading
+      scholar of the Greek Enlightenment. The typeface eventually arrived in Greece,
+      with the field press which came with Didot’s grandson Ambroise Firmin Didot,
+      during the Greek Revolution in 1821. Since then the typeface has enjoyed an
+      unrivaled success as the type of choice for almost every kind of publication
+      until the last decades of the 20th century.
+
+      Didot's original type design, as it is documented in publications during the
+      first decades of the 19th century, was digitized and revived by George D.
+      Matthiopoulos in 2006 for a project of the Department of Literature in the
+      School of Philosophy at the University of Thessaloniki, and is now available
+      for general use.
