Special Characters

I'm not sure that this is the best approach to incorporate Greek letters... different browsers will render the font differently, and they don't always look Greek. A better approach might be to show the ASCII designations and suggest using ALT + XXX and/or Character Map in windows (don't know how it works with Macs, but suspect there's a similar method). See Wikipedia's article on Special Characters. FreshBoy 12:15, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

Seconding Freshboy's thoughts here. I don't really know of any totally universal way to make greek letters display, but Unicode/UTF-8 is a bit better than the Symbol font. My version of Firefox refuses to display anything in Symbol, Wingdings, etc., and the default Arial/Helvetica/sans-serif used by most systems should have the full character set, though I know not all older browsers support it.
