If you are using PV-WAVE's software fonts; use font 4 (Simplex Greek) and font 7 (Complex Greek) to get Greek symbols in your plot annotation.

To use fonts 4 and 7, you must embed a font selection command in your text string, for example:

WAVE> PLOT, DIST(20), Title='!4R !3My Title !4D!3'

Here is what each formatting command is doing:

!4 Changes the default software font to use font 4 or Simplex Greek font.

!3 Set the font back to the default software font. The default software font is called Simplex Roman, and its font command is !3. Otherwise, the last font formatting command persists in your session.

In the example above, the letter "R" gives us sigma and the letter "D" gives us delta. To specify which Greek symbol you want, refer to the Software Character Sets in the Appendix of the PV-WAVE Reference Manual (http://www.vni.com/products/wave/documentation.html).

In addition, refer to Chapter 10 in the PV-WAVE User's Guide for general information on using fonts in PV-WAVE.

Hope this helps,
Bricey :)
