Can you paste other Greek letters? For example the gamma (Γ, U+0393), and the epsilon (Ε, U+0395)? And the lowercase versions -- γ, δ, ε?

How do you paste? With a right-click and Paste? And from where do you copy when the paste into nano does not succeed?

I can copy and paste the Unicode Delta symbol (Δ) into a normal Command Prompt window.

I can copy and paste ASCII Roman text in nano.

But I can't paste the Unicode Delta symbol (Δ) into nano.
