Hello NG, While googling for a quick and easy mathematical referrence character table, I ended up with ISO tables for HTML use (e.g. like this http://www.utoronto.ca/webdocs/HTMLdocs/NewHTML/iso_table.html ). But it is far from what I was looking for. I'm currently working on a book about computer statistics and do my notes on my laptop. The problem is - I can't type in special characters like 'median' (tilde over x) or greek characters like 'alpha' into my text editor. Is there a way to store characters like this in a plain text document on a computer? And if so, are there some character referrence tables on the internet, where one can simply copy/paste these sets, since they are not on the keyboard? Many thanks for suggestions. Regards, Dirk
