+  <description>
+    <p>
+      In Greece the terms italic and oblique have the same meaning since they are
+      borrowed from the latin typographic practice without any real historical
+      equivalent in Greek history. Until the end of the 19th century Greek typefaces
+      were cut and cast indepedently, not as members of a typefamily. The
+      mechanisation of typecutting allowed the transformation of upright Greek
+      typefaces to oblique designs. Nonetheless, the typesetting practice of a
+      cursive Greek font to complement an upright one did not survive the 19th
+      century.
+      The experimental font GFS Olga (1995) attempts to revive this lost tradition.
+      The typeface was designed and digitised by George Matthiopoulos, based on the
+      historical Porson Greek type (1803) with the intention to be the companion of
+      the upright GFS Didot font whenever there is a need for an italic alternative.
