f



text equation

I have the following text

Cell[TextData[{

"\[CapitalEpsilon]\[Iota]\[Sigma]\[Alpha]\[Gamma]\[Omega]\[Gamma]\:03ae
\[Sigma]\[Tau]\[Omicron] ",
  StyleBox["Mathematica",
    FontSlant->"Italic"],
  " "
}], "Text"]


It is a text expression whith Greek words.
(the translation is: Introduction to Mathematica)

However, I can't find how to make the greek characters not appear in
italic format.

Thanks in advance
Dimitris

Hi Dimitris,

it _is_ plain!

Compare the appearance with:
Cell[TextData[{
StyleBox["\[CapitalEpsilon]\[Iota]\[Sigma]\[Alpha]\[Gamma]\[Omega]\[Gamma]\
      \:03ae \[Sigma]\[Tau]\[Omicron] Mathematica",
   Rule[FontSlant, "Italic"]], " "}], "Text"]

Hi Dimitris,

you may have noticed FontSlant->"Italic" in your expression. Changing 

this to FontSlant->"Plain" changes the Latin characters but not the 

Greek one's. This leads to the conclusion that in the font used, plain 

and italic Greek characters share the same definition. I tried the 

fonts: Courier,Times,Helvetica with the same result.

Another observation is that not all Greek characters are slanted, e.g. 

eta is not.
