[LON-CAPA-users] Greek Characters in formula response

What I do in this case is
(a) define within the problem's code the respective variables as, say,
    alpha, and
(b) provide the students with some guidance in the problem's text saying
    that if they answer requires the symbol alpha (typeset in Greek)
    they should type the string 'alpha' (typeset in typewriter font). In
    this way I can also test formulas that include symbols such as x1,
    epsilon_0, etc.

Cheers, Itay
