--- Comment #15 from Tomaz Vajngerl <quikee at gmail.com> ---
I think the best (forward and backwards compatible) solution to this is to
embrace unicode characters for Greek symbols and always write those instead of
symbol names. We already use unicode characters when we import from MathML and
doc / docx instead of symbol names (obviously because we don't know how to map
between them). 

To make this complete we need auto-replace so we can directly convert the
symbol name into the unicode character (along with other user-defined symbols
in the catalog).

I already did some experiments with unicode Greek symbols in Elements Dock
(write the unicode symbol which is locale independent instead of symbol name)
but they are useless if we don't embrace them everywhere. This is something I
wanted to work on in the future..
