When you say "typed in," do you mean you used the notation $\alpha, \beta$
or that you typed in the actual symbols from your screen font?

I have just installed MiKTEX in a system with Windows 200 and I am
to make it show greek letters in DVI viwer. It shows greek letters but not
the letters I have typed in .tex file. I suppose that this happens because
the greek characters are in different positions in greek font of tex
comparing to that of Windows.
Can someone help? Possibly there is some way to map characters of
Thanks in advance for the help

Thanks for the interest. The problem that DVI viewer doesn't show greek
letters correctly (shows diffrerent greek letters) happens when I type in
the .tex file the actual symbols of Windows screen font. I tried a .tex file
with $\alpha, \beta$ in a line and DVI viewer showed the greek letters
I tried a solution that was proposed in some info pages, i.e. I put at
the beginning of the .tex file the line
where win2tex.tcx was a file prepared by me with the mappings of Windows'
character codes to TeX's character codes. It worked correctly for the first
few letters when I was testing it, but then it crashed because it was
affecting TeX (TeX showed a message that it was unable to find a file - the
name of the file had a greek letter because of my mappings). A possible
reason for TeX's crashing is that TeX used the command \inputenc somewhere
which doesn't work together with a .tcx file, according to the same info
You don't need to use the "digitally signed and verified" setting on your
