Galatia SIL font for Ancient Greek

If you are writing in Ancient Greek in an application such as Microsoft Word and wish to have an inverted breve, ̑, instead of a tilde, ~, above a vowel for the cirumflex accent for the perispomenon or properispomenon of words, the Galatia SIL font will allow you to do so as shown below for the letter upsilon in the Windows Character Map program.

Character Map - 
Galatia SIL Upsilon

The font can be downloaded from Galatia SIL or from this site ( After extracting the files, on a Microsoft Windows system you can right-click on the two TrueType font files, GalSILB and GalSILR, and choose "Install for all users." The font is available under the SIL Open Font License (OFL), which is a "a free, libre and open source license specifically designed for fonts and related software."

Microsoft Windows Font File in Use

I could not delete a TrueType font file, BlackFlowersBlossom.ttf, from the folder in which it was located, which was a folder beneath the user's Documents directory on her Microsoft Windows 10 system. If I attempted to delete it, a "File in Use" window opened with the message "The action can't be completed because the file is open in System."

Font - the file is open in 

With other fonts beneath her Documents folder I was able to then open Fonts from the Control Panel, which you can get to in Microsoft Windows 10 by typing fonts in the Cortana "Ask me anything" field at the bottom, left hand corner of the screen, then selecting Fonts Control Panel and then selecting the font and deleting it from the Fonts Control Panel. Once it was deleted from the Fonts area of the Control Panel, I could then delete the .ttf file from the user directory after rebooting the system.

Using a Google font on a webpage

If you wish to use a Google font on a web page, go to and select a font that appeals to you. When you've selected a font, you will see "1 Family Selected" at the bottom of the page; click on that text.

You will then see the code you need to include in your webpage to use the font. E.g., if I want to use the Yatra One font, I would include the following HTML code in the HEAD section of the webpage:

<link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

You will also see the code to use in tags within the page to specify that text should be displayed in the chosen font.

Then I could use font-family: 'Yatra One', cursive; to specify use of that font. The inclusion of cursive after 'Yatra One' indicates to a vistor's browser that if the first font listed, Yatra One, is unavailable or can't be used, whatever font it uses for a cursive font should be used, instead. You can include multiple alternate font options separated by commas. Note that in the link to the Google web page for the style sheet for the font that "Yatra" and "One" have a plus sign between them, instead of the space, but the font name is "Yatra One", which is what is used when you specify the use of the font in the page. E.g., suppose I wanted to specify that font for use with an H3 header tag. I might use code such as the following code:

<h3 style="font-family: 'Yatra One', cursive; color: orange; font-size: 34px;
text-align: center;">Garden Gnomes</h3>

In the above example, I changed the font color to orange and increased the font size to 35 pixels and centered the text on the page. The text would be displayed as shown below:

Garden Gnomes
