Polytonic Greek feature detection?

The Google Nexus 7 does not display polytonic Greek correctly, and the following lines: μὴ μὰν ἀσπουδί γε καὶ ἀκλειῶς ἀπολοίμην, ἀλλὰ μέγα ῥέξας τι καὶ ἐσσομένοισι πυθέσθαι. have gaps wherever an unsupported character occurs. The Kindle Fire 2 and Kindle Fire HD emulators display polytonic Greek correctly. On the principle that "feature detection is better than device detection", is there a way to detect polytonic Greek support as a feature, or should we just detect the Kindle Fire devices?

Hi, Feature detection is better than device detection and you can detect polytonic greek language support in Android devices by calling getAvailableLocales(). This api returns set of locales installed on system.
