Greek and other special characters.
The concept of a separate SYMBOL font is no longer implemented with the latest OS font and scripting support, especially with scalable anti-alias fonts such as Xft for Linux. Most newer fonts (if not all) now have greek characters as part of the font. The greek characters start at unicode \u0391 for 'A' and \u03b1 for 'a'. Each OS has a tool used to build and copy a string of characters. Then use the Edit:Paste menu of DS9 to insert the character string.
Linux- Gnome: gucharmap
Linux- KDE: kcharselect
MacOSX: Character Viewer (Select Edit:Special Characters) Now click and drag the characters to a terminal window. Then select the string and select Edit:Copy.
Windows: Character Map (from Start button, select All Programs, Accessories, System Tools and then Character Map)
