When a html coded page requires the Windows Symbol font, Firefox does not call it, and the English alphabet characters display instead. How can I get the Symbol font to work when the page is loaded in Firefox??

This site shows Greek letters and Greek words by calling for the Windows Symbol font. The page(s) involved display correctly in Internet Explorer, but not in Firefox 3.6.1 or 8.1. In Firefox, the Greek letter does not appear, it is just replaced with the English letter for the equivalent keystroke. Here is a html line that ought to cause Symbol's Greek letter lowercase alpha to be displayed, but all you get is an "a" :
(td width="60")(p align="center")(big)(strong)(font face="Symbol")(span style="font-family: , Symbol")a(/span)(/font)(/strong)(/big)(/td)
- I have had to replace the left and right carets with left and right parentheses. Otherwise, the line actually executes, disappears, and just leaves a bolded "a" on the next line.***
