Three simple options for UTF-8 with Greek fonts:
1. Linux console:
echo -e '\e%G'
setfont -u iso07 iso07.f16
2. XFree86 XTerm (use a recent version of everything):
xterm -u8 -fn '-misc-fixed*iso10646*'
3. Mac OS X 10.2 Terminal.app v71
# choose the "Monaco Regular" font
Links or ELinks in UTF-8 I/O mode with the ISO8859-7 "display" charset can then show Greek characters just fine.
