I was playing with some Modern Greek texts in Mathematica. I was wondering if there is a way to copy strings containing Greek letters as unicode rather than the Mathematica representation, so I can paste them into other programs. When copying an alpha (=E1), Mathematica places \[Alpha] on the clipboard, and not the corresponding unicode character. This is very useful in most cases, but for this (admittedly quite unusual) particular application it is a hindrance.
