"GreekP" stands for polytonic Greek. "Greek" stands for monotonic Greek,
but Linotype has done a terrible mistake: instead of using an acute accent
glyph for the unique accent, they took a triangle. These fonts should be
avoided. For typesetting monotonic Greek, it is better to take a polytonic
font and use its acute accent.

CE stands for Central Europe, these fonts have more or less the glyphs of
ISO Latin-2: theyr cover Albanian, Croatian, Czech, Hungarian, Polish,
Romanian (with a comma and not a cedilla), Slovak, Slovene and Sorbian.
