From the Windows Character Map program.
Not sure if it will help you but here is what it shows.

Times New Roman TTF
U+0394 : Greek Capital Letter Delta

Thanks, Glen! Now, how do I get the DELTA Symbol into a text paragraph in MSCAD2004 using Italic Leroy?

You have to use a True type font to get this symbol and not all
true type fonts will give it to you.

I found if you use the True type Font SYMBOL

Hold the Alt KEY and type 68 for Capital DELTA symbol
Hold the Alt KEY and type 100 for the Small letter DELTA

Awsome (in the Bill Ingvall sense of the word!)

I don't have "Symbols" TT Font, but I did have a Greek SImplex and a Greek Complex font. We'll load that into our generic template now. for use in the future.

We can use the font we're using and set a "place holder" space. Then go back in to draw in the Delta. Simple!

Thanks again, RW!

Ian,
What I do for labeling delta is use a greek font and I think there are two ins MS Cad, one is simplex and the other is complex. Type in a capital D and it prints out as a delta symbol.
