In principle, just write the Unicode value as a character reference, e.g.
&#x039B; for Greek capital lambda.

The problem is it will only display correctly if (a) the user has an
up-to-date browser (I can't give you exact details on what's supported in
which version of what product), and (b) the user has a font installed that
includes a glyph for the relevant character.

If you want to display esoteric characters and have them work on every
browser in the world, it's still necessary to use GIFs.
