I have tried create a plot with a label containing Greek letters and I've noticed that if the plot is exported as .pdf or .eps format capital Greek letter or lowercase accented letters can not be rendered, while in .tiff format everything seems fine. I used the following code in order to test it. Is there a way to correct this?

Thanks in advance,


label = Style[
"α β γ δ ε ζ η θ ι κ λ μ ν ξ ο π ρ σ τ υ φ χ ψ ω\nά ί ή ύ ό ώ\nΑ Β \
Γ Δ Ε Ζ Η Θ Ι Κ Λ Μ Ν Ξ Ο Π Ρ Σ Τ Υ Φ Χ Ψ Ω", FontFamily -> "Times",

pl = Plot[x, {x, 0, 10}, FrameLabel -> {label, label},
ImageSize -> (72/2.54) 15]

Export["pl.tiff", pl, ImageResolution -> 200]
Export["pl.pdf", pl]
Export["pl.eps", pl]
