Default Greek letters

Gentlemen, I am sorry to have to bother for so little, but it is to write formulas is one of my vices, and I can not write the Greek letter pi, instead appears Cyrillic counterpart π.

The funny thing is that first displays correctly, then the post appears bad.

Thanks

And you're looking to post this... π ?
I did this by just clicking the "Switch Editor Mode" button at the top right of the Quick Reply message editing window. I'm not sure what the button does other than change between serif and sans serif fonts.
edit: uhh... no... it seems to switch back when the Post Reply button is clicked. Rats! I hate when that happens.

Yes, to me it is the same, when I press the button "Preview Post" and "Submit Replay"

The problem began this year, in old post last year everything worked fine.

I do, I read the whole thread, but the problem now is another, to clarify ideas.

Last year

This year

The strangest thing is that it only happens with pi.

Today happened to me once more

Elevated Heater Question

Is that moderators can not return pi ?

Perhaps stole it Wavebourn ?

He likes the Cyrillic π

Why not just use "pi"?

I think we will understand. (I hope we will understand)

You post that to "forum problems" threads but for Jason to see. We mods are not accessing the platform.

I think its just the way Tahoma renders pi, if you select another font...

π Tahoma, forum default
π Times New Roman
π Georgia
