# Greek Letters, Symbols and Mathematical Symbols

The following named character entities are defined by HTML 4.0 and XHTML 1.0.

**NOTE: Doing Greek and symbols so that Netscape prior to version 6 will
display them correctly is problematical depending on what characters.
Netscape earlier than version 6 did not understand the complete set of
unicode symbols. In this case see the last table on this page. There
is a font solution for the most common characters. Even this does not
work consistently.**
