Hi Graham,

I have a Symbol font on my Windows PC. I think it was installed by 
default. The p is displayed as the Greek letter pi, just like on the Mac.

How do I access it? It's annoying that this isn't really an issue for the Mac but it is for the PC. Of course I could just create a little graphic that looks like 'pi', or 'greater than or equals', or whatever, but this only works for static text really.
