Hi there
I need to use the Danish letter "æ, ø and å" in a text() equation. Here's a random example of two versions, where one works and one fails because I am using the Danish letters:
text(.5,.5,'$\textrm{aeoeaa}=\frac{\textrm{ae}^{7}_{oe}}{\textrm{aaaa}_{\textrm{ae}}}$','interpreter','latex');
text(.5,.5,'$\textrm{æøå}=\frac{\textrm{æ}^{7}_{ø}}{\textrm{åå}_{\textrm{æ}}}$','interpreter','latex');
Any idea on how to fix this?

This at least displays the characters in the figure on screen (I've had varying successes printing to file):
text(.25,.25,'$\textrm{\ae\o\aa}=\frac{\textrm{\ae}^{7}_{\o}}{\textrm{\aa}_{\textrm{\ae}}}$',...
'interpreter','latex',...
'fontsize',25);
Good luck.
