Greek Alphabet

The Greek alphabet is essential expressing formulas and in technical language.

The Greek alphabet is derived from the Phoenician alphabeth and has been used to write the Greek language since the 8th century BC.

The table below can used to find the right characters or codes to express the Greek alphabet in html documents or similar.

Adding the Entity, Decimal or Hex expressions directly in the html code will render the letter in a web browser as shown in 1).

Formatting a normal character as "Symbol font" will render the character as shown in 2).

Note! Not all browsers may render the codes and fonts properly.
