Sigh.... my attempt to get Charinsert to insert html α etc
instead of the character was a miserable failure.
Putting α in charinsert still inserts a lovely greek letter,
but it doesn't show up as α in the wikitext.
I'd like it to be saved in the database as α so that searching
for "alpha" finds it.
I'm guessing that I have to tweak something. Anyone else run into this?
