This is a feature request rather than a bug report.

Wikipedia's limited version of [[TeX]] is immensely useful in mathematics
articles.  In particular one can type any and all of the 24 letters of the
standard Greek alphabet:
: <math>
\, </math>
However, one cannot (as far as I can tell so far) type the lower-case [[stigma
(letter)|stigma]] or [[koppa (letter)|koppa]].  These were used in ancient
[[Greek numerals]], and in Wikipedia articles that need to mention ancient
Greek arithmetic, they would be useful.  For examlpe, the 2nd-century
trigonometric table on page 48 of
[ this pdf file]
uses both stigma and koppa.  I think these can be found in some [[LaTex]]
packages.  I would like to see them available for use in Wikipedia articles. 
Can someone here help with that?
