On the Mac greek characters can be typed by holding Option and typing the
corresponding letter. Holding Shift and Option will give you some uppercase
greek characters. To Type µ it is Option-m.

That may be the case, but it still shows as a blank
here!

That's probably because I sent this using a terminal based UNIX email
client called Mutt and not from my Mac. Mutt defaults to 7-bit ASCII so
it probably killed off the mu symbol.

I don't think Mutt killed the mu symbol, because I saw it. It might not
have set the headers correctly, maybe.

On the Mac greek characters can be typed by holding Option and typing the
corresponding letter. Holding Shift and Option will give you some upperca=
se
greek characters. To Type =B5 it is Option-m.

Somewhere the charset didn't get set right, or got lost though...
