I don't like the $\xi$ symbol that mathpazo comes with, so I want to go back to Computer Modern for that symbol alone. How can I do this?

The code is in fontmath.ltx:

\DeclareMathSymbol{\xi}{\mathord}{letters}{"18}

To make the change you want, you can fetch the CM definition of letters and change it into

\DeclareSymbolFont{CMletters}{OML}{cmm}{m}{it}

and then

\DeclareMathSymbol{\xi}{\mathord}{CMletters}{"18}

  • @smh I don't get this error; please, open a new question, with a link to this one, adding a minimal example producing the error. – egreg Dec 7 '12 at 12:13
