Better still, if you have control of the origination, is to use UTF-8

Your remark made me think of something: does there exist a clever program that
parses LaTeX code and replaces all $\mu$ occurrences (and such) into their
corresponding actual Unicode code so that these letters show properly when the
document is opened in an Unicode-capable terminal (I use vim)? That might well
be a solution to at least handle the situationr: going through the character
selection process for each one is pedestrian!
