Did you check later CVS? I tried to read an RTF containing beta from the
Symbol font both as 'b' (CP_SYMBOL codepage) and as 0xF062 (Unicode),
and both did look like betas on the screen.

Anyway, thanks, because the RTF output you quote shows another bug in the
RTF writer which I'm addressing now.

"\u61538?" should be "b", and even if it was not in a symbol charset, it
should read "\u-3598" - RTF uses signed 16-bit values here.

I suppose this is more addressed to Krzysztof... The readability could be
even better if tab positions were supported :)
