Is there a way to include alpha, beta and gamma, and maybe a few other Greek characters in a programme?

Yes, easy. Just include them in the string by typing the character with the alt key held down (hold the alt key and type the characters value), or include it as it's integer value.

I can't find the values I want, but say alpha's char value is 1234 then you could use it in a pocket c app like:

alert("Alpha: " + (char)1234);

Ok, that's not very useful. Here's a pointer to the latest version of my PocketC app, ACT2, which lets you easily copy and paste extended characters as text, numerical value, or html code:

It's not really a full release (no launchers, icon, or help) but it will work on any windows CE device and will get you the characters you want.

Thanks for reminding me I need to get it finished!
