Should be okay.

These should print okay in problems

&alpha, &beta, &gamma, &delta, &epsilon, &zeta, &eta, &theta, &iota
&kappa, &lambda, &mu, &nu, &xi, &omicron, &pi, &rho, &sigma, &tau, &upsilon
&phi, &chi, &psi, &omega, &thetasym, &piv, &Alpha, &Beta, &Gamma, &Delta
&Epsilon, &Zeta, &Eta, &Theta, &Iota, &Kappa, &Lambda, &Mu, &Nu, &Xi
&Omicron, &Pi, &Rho, &Sigma, &Tau, &Upsilon, &Phi, &Psi, &Omega

Spaches not required.
