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.
