  Zeta (letter) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zeta (uppercase Ζ, lowercase ζ) is the sixth letter of the Greek alphabet.

 Pronunciation of Ancient Greek Zeta   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Ancient Greek letter zeta was used in very early times to stand for the combined sound [zd] in some places of Greece, while in other places it was standing for the sound [dz].
Letters zeta, ksi, and psi were called double letters, standing for two consonantal sounds instead of a single one.
And these are called double either because they are compound, the zeta through sigma and delta, the ksi through kappa and sigma, and the psi through pi and sigma, which when co-articulated together acquire their own sound; or because they occupy the space of two letters in the syllables where each is found.” (Comp.

 Ordering
The latter issue is easier, since the non-Attic letters already have canonical positions thanks to their erstwhile positions as numerals (and lexica reflect this where they do not conflate non-Attic letters with extant letters, as is usually the case with koppa, san, and sampi): the ordering is
Heta and eta are variants of the same letter, and I do not know of a canonical decision on which comes first if both occur in an index (which is rare).
Ligatures canonical or not, to the extent that they belong in Unicode at all, would presumably sort as their expanded counterparts: even if a stigma were left as is in the word in an index (which is doubtful), it would sort under sigma tau.

 Tropical Storm Zeta hieroglyphic and the Balance Bible Code.
The Hebrew letter "Zayin" means "a weapon" and is an ancient image of a dagger, and here it lies in the hand of the lower balance, that is, in the hand of Christ.
But for now note that the letters (formed by encoded images) are emitted from the fountain ('ayin') of the wheel (circle), which is located at the exact center of where the bottom hand of the balance was.
The point is this: There were many Hebrew letters that were encoded by spelling the letter or that were formed by hieroglyphic images as they intersected with and moved up the 'river'.

J'Freak has recently brought a new twist to this campaign; although our letters should still be aimed towards Kids' WB for a new season, we should ALSO be writing to Cartoon Network asking them to air reruns (they've had great success with Batman Beyond, after all!).
Again, making sure that your letter is perfect before it's sent is another way to show Kids' WB that you've spent time and effort writing it.
Send as many letters as you can but make sure to space them out a few days apart- you don't want ten of your letters arriving on the exact same day because the staff will probably only read one and skim the rest (or completely disregard them).
