Greek in Unicode
Unicode was created to be able to represent any character of any language imaginable. In this way, using Unicode, any Greek character can be created on any keyboard.
The Greek letter Σ e.g. corresponds to the value 03A3 in Unicode. In the left table you will find the Unicode values for all characters of the Greek alphabet.
How to create a Greek letter with Unicode
For example to create Σ follow these steps:
- Press at the same time Ctrl + Shift + u (=> an underlined u appears), then
- enter the Unicode value from the table (e.g. 03A3), then
- press the enter key (=> Σ appears)
It's not necessary to enter the leading zeros. The letters in Unicode can be entered in upper cased or lower cased letters.
