have you access to an utf-8 input method?

the standard latex \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} support doesn't deal
with greek; however, utf8x from the unicode package does (i think it
assumes the LGR encoding of the fonts, but the documentation explains
what it's doing).

(be sure to get an up-to-date version of the unicode package).
