This is strange, because I get Greek characters I
enter as &agr; and &zgr; in chapter titles when I use
title.font.family=Helvetica in the 1.62.0 stylesheets.
There are two properties in output of the 1.62.0
stylesheets that should make this work in XEP.

Peek inside your FO output and see if you have this property
on the fo:root element:


And search for the page with the chapter title
and see if the block that sets the font-family has:


If both of these are ok, then something is going wrong
with XEP switching to the alternate font.  Maybe
