Hi;

I want to be able to type greek letters in a non-math environment, and
to get the letter in the same font as the rest of the paragraph (I'm
using letters like mu, beta...).
In the mean time, I want to keep the standard math font the usual one
(different from text font).

For the moment I was giving a couple of tries with the font
RotisSemiSans (pr3).
Using nfssfont.tex I checked that some of the fonts include the desired
symbols (say I'm looking for mu):

mu can be found in pr3r8r for example (along with all the "normal"
characters). I also find it in pr3r8c but this one doesn't contain any
roman letter, and pr3r8t contain roman character with all sort of
accent, cedille... but not much symbols.

In short:
I would like to make a command (ie \mu) calling the proper character
(B4) of the police typed 8r.
Even better would it be to have it recognised by the applemac input
encoding.

Any help  much welcomed.

Serge.
