I'm confused regarding the use of Unicode characters in matplotlib. I tried the following:
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import matplotlib.pyplot as P
ax = P.gca()
ax.set_title(u"OK: ±×÷, Not OK: αβγδ")
The 1st "OK" characters are displayed correctly, while the "Not OK" ones are (well) not (while they are available from the Gnome Character Map). I have a standard matplotlib over a standard Ubuntu distribution...
I'm aware I could use "r$\alpha$" and so on, but I'd like to stick to unicode characters... Is there any hope to use unicode greek characters?
