I am trying to have a label with microns in it (µm).
I know that in LaTeX it is a problem to print upright "mu", because the
mathematical environment $..$ will only provide the italic greek
symbols. However, for LaTeX there are packages to handle this problem.
How can I manage this problem in the MetaPost labels? In the btex ...
etex environment only TeX is allowed (?). And in any case, how could I
introduce any packages in the btex ... etex environment.
I also tried to access the ASCII symbol 181 directly using char, but
MetaPost only returns something like "^^b5" instead of "mu".
I would really appreciate, if any could help me solving this problem.
