Greek Letters
Author(s):

Brenda Gregoline

If Greek letters need to be marked or modified on page proofs, this can be done by writing the letters “Gk” in the margin, followed by a description of the character (eg, “Gk lowercase mu”).Greek letters can pose problems for some Internet browsers. The best solution for editors is to make sure their text outputs Greek letters in a universal, platform-independent, nonproprietary standard for character encoding, such as Unicode. Most word processing and typesetting programs can generate Greek letters that already are Unicode encoded. Greek letters in running text should never be saved as graphics; these files are much larger
