Follow-up Comment #8, bug #43651 (project octave):

Most rich text editors (latex, libreoffice ...) use different fonts for
(inline or not) math symbols.  
I'd vote doing the same in Octave by choosing using a full featured font
(ASANA?[1] Computer Modern? ...) that we would ship with Octave so that we are
sure all symbols can be shown whatever the main text font is chosen by the
The example below leads to 2 different characters for the mu greek letter in
Matlab (see screen shot attached), one for the utf8 character input and one
for the tex input:

axes ()
text (.5, .5, 'ยต\mu', 'fontsize', 18)
