Hello all,

Traditional greek order (as used by scientists)

alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon, zeta, eta, theta, iota, kappa, lambda, mu, nu, xi, omicron, pi, rho, sigma, tau, upsilon, phi, chi, psi, omega

Each alphabet has its own traditional order.  SSS is the "traditional" order for the SW.

Hello Everyone, and Charles ;-)
Ha! I have no idea what order these symbols go in...the listing order
was by English alphabetic order, because that was the way my computer
listed them this is no statement whatsoever on is just the symbols I wanted to display to the world...I
will leave the order to those who know Greek!

The researchers sent me an individual SGN file for each individual
symbol, and they named the files alpha, beta, chi etc...and the Mac put
those in alphabetical order in English...

If someone wants me to change the order, just tell me what it is and I
will be happy to do it...

Val ;-)
