C For Dummies Easter Egg - It's All Greek to Me

Turn to page 371, and you will see graphical representations of various C header files. They are shown as pieces of paper with large titles at the top, and some text at the bottom. Looking at the text, however, only shows some Greek text which doesn't translate into anything in English. So it's just filler, right? Wrong!
If you use Windows, you may be aware of a font called Symbol. Typing regular letters in this font creates ...you guessed it!... Greek letters. By putting these symbols back into their regular font equivalents, you get the following hidden message:

This is some very small text that you probably won't be able to read. If you can, then you are very good. If you can't, you're typical. Actually, if you're my editor, then you'll probably be looking for some bad stuff. Rest assured. It's not in here. BUT not that I'm writing this stuff in GREEK, I don't think there will be a problem with it. Unless, of course, you're GREEK.
