First trial from the existing CharacterMap plugin :

"α" added to the charmap popup ;
.charmaths class = .character one with face turned to "Symbol"
Selection is OK. Transcription into the body is OK, back to selection.
Then, with FF after saving : Display is OK, from hexa #...; coding ;
while result displayed under IE6 is not correct : Previously accentuated
characters are changed into strange digrams.
I am stopping here trials. Pb. under IE needs to be fixed before going
on with such a new plugin. I have tried to look the code into htmlarea.js,
without success. Help from people skilfull in JS needed !

This is caused by two things:

IE, unlike Firefox, is not smart enough to preserve HTML entities in Rich Text areas, unless it is stopped it converts everything from the CharacterMap plugin to the actual symbol

Your system is not set up to support UTF-8, when the characters instead of the HTML entities are saved, they are corrupted.

This problem has been documented in several tickets, and the patch is easy to apply.

Are you using Xinha with or without the GetHtml plugin?
