looking for font "sans-serif symbol"


Hi,

I am having hard time to find symbol font (for penguin and Mac) which goes well with "Helvetica" (mono width font for Greek alpha beta..... omega)

PS font for symbol is a kind of serif type and goes well with Times.

Apologies for ignorance of correct term in font world. I thought it would be easier when I started.

So far, I have searched http://www.1001freefonts.com http://www.free-fonts.com http://www.fontparadise.com http://www.abstractfonts.com http://www.1001fonts.com
and no luck yet.

Any clue will be appreciated.

Thanks

Happy Penguins!

Hya,

Solution (I have not checked with penguins yet) is to use unicode ones. Mac OSX worked.

Happy Penguin and Apples!
