[S] ASCII characters in script files

I run S+ 4.5 from on Windows NT. I stumbled on an unexpected
benefit that others might find useful.

When creating plots from a script file you can use the standard
shortcuts for ASCII characters to include the characters in text
strings for titles and such. For example ALT224 gives an alpha
character that looks like alpha in the script file and on the
plot. This is a simple way to incorporate greek letters and math
sybols (such as "plus or minus" and "equal to or less than").

I don't understand why this works from a script file when it
never has and still doesn't work from the command line.
Nevertheless, I'm glad it works.
