    Help needed writing notes on a HP 50g

    So I'm trying to write notes and put them into my 50g, and it's fine for plain text stuff, but I don't know the codes for greek letters, integration and summation symbols, and so on. Is there a handy font or an app for these things?

    Is it really necessary to do this? If you plan on storing these notes for use on a test, it would be considered a form of academic dishonesty unless you're professor is OK the use of notes on an exam........

    You would be better off with memorizing the material needed to do well on the exam than to take a chance with your grade [in the case its not allowed].

    To clarify, this isn't for a test or exam, and if it were, I'm perfectly capable of writing such things out longhand. This is so I can carry around the equations that I expect to need. Also because, you know, it's a fun toy and I want to be able to use it fully

    Yes - you can see the list of all characters (and their numeric code at the bottom of the display) by pressing the "Right-Shift CHARS" key.

    Actually, that is handy... I can type up in UltraEdit (hex editor of choice) and it's readable on the calc. Now I just need to figure out how to make my formulae added like that appear in the graphical mode - all pretty and stuff.
