Default Greek letters

Hi,

as HTML code doesn't work, is there another way to show Greek letters, such as Omega for ohm, in this board?

Best regards!

Well it's in the Symbol character set (as Alt. 0087). But I don't know how to get to the Symbol character set.

If you use Windows, it can be found easily via Character Map. Ω

How did you do that?
When I go to Windows:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map.
then
font = Symbol
selecting the Ohm symbol and copying it to this reply I get a "W".

It's the Arial font. It seems to be the default font for the board.
ASCII alt-codes are all an iffy proposition at best here, and aren't an option with my laptop. Character Map gets a Quick Launch icon.

Depress ALT, then
234, ALT release = Ω
230 =
253 =
so, ALT230, ALT release, ALT253, ALT release, will give you
251 = √
248 = (degrees, temperature)
241 =
0169 =
and so on...
