// Create a Unicode String with a Greek Omega character
String szGreekOmega = new String(new char [] {'\u03A9','\u03A9','\u03A9'},2,1);

String szGreekLetters = String.Concat(szGreekOmega, szGreekAlpha, szGreekOmega.Clone());

// Examine the result
Console.WriteLine(szGreekLetters);

// The first index of Alpha
int ialpha = szGreekLetters.IndexOf('\u0319');
// The last index of Omega
int iomega = szGreekLetters.LastIndexOf('\u03A9');

Console.WriteLine("The Greek letter Alpha first appears at index " + ialpha +
    " and Omega last appears at index " + iomega + " in this String.");
