When I was visiting Greece I saw prayer books, Bibles, liturgical books, etc. all edited and printed using PC software.

Is there a way of typing in e.g. microsoft word Xth century Greek unical texts?

I found a couple of fonts, e.g. this one: http://individual.utoronto.ca/atloder/uncialfonts.html

but there is no way of typing abbreviations, e.g. IC XC (with "titlas")

Do you know of any greek uncial font that I could use?

Thank you!

I don't think the Unicode range for Greek has titlas, so there wouldn't be a way with a normal font. Some specialty fonts might have particular characters, though I don't know if any. I suspect there is a LaTeX package out there that can do it, but I don't know specifics.
