I think what you are experiencing here is Unicode shenanigans. You
don't specify, but I assume you are creating the Greek characters using
the Symbol font. The Symbol font uses a new type of character encoding
called Unicode, which Doc-2-Help supports. Most normal font sets, and
most programs out there, only support ANSI character codes. Look at: for more
information. This Knowledge Base article contains a VBA script that is
supposed to convert Unicode fonts to ANSI fonts, but you may lose some
characters. The article also provides more information on the problem.
