    On page http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_2/chpt_3/2.html
    , after the table titled "Reactance of a 10 mH inductor:",

    it appears that the text starts using the letter "n" in place of the greek letter "pi."

    For example:

    "In the reactance equation, the term “2πf” (everything on the right-hand side except the L) has a special meaning unto itself."

    For the rest of the page, "n" continues to be used.

    Above the table, the greek letter "pi" is used.

    I haven't read any further, so I don't know if this continues on other pages.

    I am Greek (from Cyprus actually) and you can use both symbols to represent the greek pi. However, the first symbol used for pi is more correct.

    Yeah, I'm not too happy with Veranda character set in this case. Check this post out...

    The character in question is <alt>277. While I don't like, I believe it is pi. I don't see any other characters even close.
