  There is an on-screen keyboard available in Windows.

For XP it is at:


Does anyone know how to have this come up to allow typing of Greek characters, without changing the basic language of the computer from English?

  The on-screen keyboard uses the same input language as the normal hardware keybord. That means that in order to type Greek using the on-screen keyboard, you'll have to switch the input language to Greek, just like with the hardware keyboard.

By the way, this on-screen keyboard is also available in Windows 2000.

  maybe in combination with (free for personal use) tavultesoft's 'keyman' and a proper font (means a unicode somewhat->palatino linotype) you won't have troubles with your language switching issues (there's a complete package availble). otherwise simply use this keyman after you have become used to the alphabet, and therefore don't need the visual help, for typing greek in any documents (the button mapping is somewhat complex, but i'm sure, that you get used to it quickly) you desire to do so.
