## special characters in labels, axis labels, etc.

how do I display special characters

I specifically am coming up empty in dealing with special characters in plot axis labels.  Greek symbols and supercripts to be exact.  I tried the LaTex syntax and unicode syntax but all I get is the special string in the label and not the special.  For now this is a plotting issue (for example, m^3, or $\theta$) but I'm sure this will come up again in the simulation description, text strings in drawing panels, text labels for numeric entry boxes.

Any good examples or reference WIKI pages out there?

(I tried the wiki and looking at posted ejss sims but came up empty.)

Thanks for helping me work through all my conversions.
