Hi Nancy, If you look closely at the table, you'll see that the alpha symbol appears in the Symbol font column. In other words, Adobe/Frame is advising that you enter ANSI 097 (for a) and apply the Symbol font. So you understood just fine, you just missed the last step. At the end of the week,

Where did you get that 097 code point? Decimal 097 (hex 0061) is actually the code point for a Latin lower-case a, and perhaps the instruction you cite assumed that you would format the character as Symbol font, which maps the Greek alphabet to the corresponding Latin alphabet code points and

FM 9 and FM 10 should work identically in regard to _this_ font issue, so no need to worry about that in this case. :) Most importantly, from that link document, on page 13, it shows that you need to use the Symbol font to get an alpha (for the value 097). Z From:

Hi, all.Well, life turned out to be simpler than I'd feared.(Syed, I didn't get the result you describe. As you stated, Alt-097 produces a lowercase a (in Arial, anyway). When I switch it to Symbol, I got a small uppercase A in what looks like a serif font.)However, I copied and pasted my source

Yep, but like so many things (CSS, HTML5, EPUB, XML, DITA, Extend/FrameScript) little doses over time can make a big difference.I sat in on an XSLT session by Dave Gash at the STC conference this spring and it helped turn on the lights in under an hour!I'm hopeful this might take me to that next
