So I opened Microsoft Works [MW] and set up the headers for my table. Using a plug-in for Firefox that allows me to type Greek directly rather than laboriously finding and selecting the Greek characters in Character Map, I typed in the Greek for "I am", copied it and pasted it into a cell and got... a string of question marks. Looking up "Unicode" in MW's help, it says that you can enter Unicode (suggesting you create the text you want in Character Map), but it seems that it doesn't work.
I see from http://www.e-ternals...nanos/share.htm that older versions of MW aren't compatible with Unicode, and on checking "About Microsoft Works", I see my version is from 2002. (It came pre-installed with my PC, which I bought last year.) Is there an upgrade I can get, preferably without having to shell out a small fortune for a new version?
Alternatively, is there a freeware spreadsheet program out there (I have no particular attachment to MW) that is Unicode-compatible?
