Is it possible to insert a greek character into pages on the ipad?
There is no greek input available yet, but you can always copy/paste from another doc or use one of the various apps that let you input unicode characters.iMac Intel/2C2D, eMac G4/700, Mac OS X (10.6), 10.5, 10.4, 10.3, 9.2

is it possible to superscript and subscript in pages on the ipad?
I think for that you may also need to use Unicode super/subscripts either via copy/paste or an app.iMac Intel/2C2D, eMac G4/700, Mac OS X (10.6), 10.5, 10.4, 10.3, 9.2

Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2010 10:10 PM (in response to kitzj0)I doubt there is any need for other apps, or copy and paste, to enter Greek letters. While the iPad is not available in my country yet, from experience with the iPhone, you should be able to type foreign languages directly into any application. On the iPhone this is how you enable the Greek keyboard: tap Settings, tap General, tap Keyboards, tap International keyboards, slide Greek to on. Then, when typing text, if you want to type a Greek letter, click the icon of a globe that switches between languages. After typing the letters you need, click the globe again to switch back to English.iPhone 3G, iPhone OS 3.0

Unfortunately your experience is not of any value in this case. If you read the tech specs for the ipad, you can see that Greek and about 2 dozen other keyboards found in the iphone are not yet included. So there is no way to type Greek directly into an app.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 10, 2011 3:45 PM (in response to kitzj0)I am still struggling to find out how to do superscript and subscript on the iPad. But i am able to use greek letters by enabling the international keyboard:
setting --> general --> keyboard --> international keyboard --> add international keyboard --> Greek
now back out and bring up pages.
select the globe icon on the lower left between numbers and space, to bring up the greek characters.
hit the globe again to return to english.
hopefully this works out for ya.iMac, Macbook, iPhone, iPad, Mac OS X (10.0.x)

I know this is an old thread but it's still the top result in google for this problem so I'm posting here.
I had been copy/pasting greek letters & other symbols for a long time before I realised this trick today.
Use the iPad's shortcuts feature in keyboard settings for any symbols you use regularly, eg I use "ss2" as a shortcut for 2 and "/-" for ±, still a work around but alot smoother than what I've been doing for over a year with the added bonus of working in any app.
Combined with the greek intl keyboard this is barely a problem, even if it is a glaring omission by apple.
