Default Find and Replace GREEK symbols in XP, 2K & 97

In MS Word XP - for that matter 2K and 97 --

Using Greek symbols in a scientific paper - long doc - need to use find and
replace for multiple reasons -

Find and replace does not allow for entering greek symbols into the FIND
field. It is not listed under special or format menus on the expanded FIND
dialog box. Cannot paste into that field either

Does anyone know how the find & replace commands can be utilized with greek
symbols.

shortcut - I know better than that - so wrap me on the knuckles!

Kudos and many thanks to you!!!!

Done! g

Pasting symbols into "Find what" doesn't always find them in Word2000 =
(and in other versions if you also specify the symbol font). If you run =
into that, post back, or google around.
Regular Greek letters from some regular font like Arial or Times New =
Roman aren't ever a problem... which is one reason to prefer them over =
those from the "Symbol" font.
