The biosci server appears to remove some required part of the special
characters you used. I believe you are asking what the delta symbol

SGD has a page about nomenclature. Of particular interest is the "gene
nomenclature guide". Its a PDF file from Trends in Genetics. Fred
Sherman also has a nice web site of information, see chapter 6 on
