{Lots of pages of Greek letters and stuff in Windows under character map via the clipboard.}

¡× - section
©ª - phi

I know if you hold down the "Alt" key, and type 0216, it becomes "theta" or the phase symbol

Of course it won't do it here, darn thing just keeps binging at me [Linked Image]

Cindy,

be sure your " Num Lock " is on to use the " Alt + numeric keys ".
