Yes clearly so.
The one thing I found extremely nice (modulo minor niggles) was the fact
that if in the viewer I have greek keyboard support (at least under WinXX) I
automagically have greek keyboard support under Xvnc as well.
Greek keyboards tend not to be very high priority for many things.

keys) only the accent shows and not the accented character.
