    But you did provide Unicode code points for these seven letters in your

    Έ U+0388
    Ά U+0386
    Ύ U+038E
    Ό U+038C
    Ώ U+038F
    Ί U+038A
    Ή U+0389

    Other letters with tonos can be found in the "Greek and Coptic" block at
    U+03xx, in the "Greek Extended" block at U+1Fxx, or by adding U+0301
    COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT to a base vowel.

    As far as the browsers are concerned, it is likely that most *browsers*
    can handle these letters just fine but many *fonts* do not include
    glyphs for them. Go to and click on "Display Problems?"
    for more information.
