You don't need any special font.

However, I now see that Mozilla Firefox does not recognize this font
and the correct characters are not displayed.

Can you post a URL to a test case? Modern browsers are able to display
almost any char. Test for yourself:


You're right ... the page you linked displays fine on my Mozilla
browser..... so ... there is a solution !

Here is a page that uses the Symbol font for Greek letters that
doesn't display correctly ...

Here is a formula that is supposed to contain Greek letters, as it
displays on my Mozilla browser

T = L/(c + v) + L/(c - v) = 2cL/(c2 - v2) = 2L/c(1 - v2/c2) = 2L/c g2

(the g is a Symbol font character ... but it's displaying as just a g)

Thanks ... !

In that case, you could probably use the equivelant "&#" assignment.
As well as the "&name" like in "&iota".

Yep, that'll do it. Thanks.
