Hello! I would like to export strings of text containing extended ascii characters, with Macintosh encoding. The following code works for most characters: Export["outputfile.txt", myString, "Lines", CharacterEncoding -> "MacintoshRoman"] but it gets the following four greek letters wrong: 1) lower case pi, which turns up as literal \[Pi] 2) capital omega, which turns up as literal \[CapitalOmega] 3) capital delta, which turns up as literal \[CapitalDelta] 4) lower case mu, which turns up as literal \[Mu] Capital sigma and capital pi come out correct, though. What can I do, other than hand-editing the resulting file? My version is "4.1 for Power Macintosh (November 2, 2000)". Thanks in advance for any help!
