It's not secret, either, but I'm not inclined to give a big lecture about it. I'd prefer to focus on things that affect more users. But, in brief... H = character that spans horizontally (plus a list of glyph indices which compose the parts) V = character that spans vertically (plus glyph indices) -2 = character which maps to font 2 on non-Greek systems and pulls from the system fonts on Greek systems. Unicode does not distinguish between Greek characters used for language and those used for math (except for the special case of epsilon), so we have to instead.
