Quine, please tell me how you did an actual pi!

You can include Greek letters in your posts by making use of HTML entities. These are strings of characters which are interpreted by the browser as a single character. They always begin with an ampersand symbol (&) and end with a semicolon.

For pi (π), simply type π

You can include lots of mathematical and other symbols in the same way. For example, to include a “squared” symbol (e.g. 3x²) type ².

See here for a comprehensive list of HTML entities. I cannot guarantee it will be possible to use all of them on this website – you will have to use trial and error to a considerable extent.
