Hi Dimitris,

you may have noticed FontSlant->"Italic" in your expression. Changing 

this to FontSlant->"Plain" changes the Latin characters but not the 

Greek one's. This leads to the conclusion that in the font used, plain 

and italic Greek characters share the same definition. I tried the 

fonts: Courier,Times,Helvetica with the same result.

Another observation is that not all Greek characters are slanted, e.g. 

eta is not.
