Greek legends are not displaying correctly. The are correct if a unicode based editor is used to display the page.

You might want to look into using entities ie like &916; to represent delta rather than a binary 916.

Unicode as implemented in HTML definitely appears to be a big programming headache. What shows right in one browser is messed up in another. This goes well beyond just choosing a set of characters that works and expect them to display properly for everyone.

The solution I can think of is to turn the font into a special bitmap and treat them as individual images rather than text but that has its downsides too, like having to click everything in and losing cut and paste.

I'm a bit at a loss on how to recommend a perfect solution for the programmer to work it in and am receptive to more ideas.
