Hi chris -

I agree, I'd just as soon stick with the Symbol font also. The texts I
reprocessed don't use accents anyways. I also reprocessed the umgreek text to
use the Symbol font as it only uses a few special characters which really don't
add much since it's unaccented anyways. You can review it and decide if you
want to post it. The final sigmas are also corrected to the right character for
all of the texts. I'll e-mail you the new texts later this evening. Thanks and
God bless.
