    Default greek letter shortcuts
    I noticed an error: funny it was the one Greek letter I was interested in learning about at the moment. The shortcut you have for phi is not for phi, but for pi. Phi is a circle with a vertical line through it.

    Cheers, mates,

    Default Small Quibble
    The (option-S, unicode 00DF) is actually a German "ess-tsett", not a Greek beta (βunicode 03B2)though I am not sure what the option-code is for beta.
