Re: OT: degree sign


marge, what the character map tells you is the ascii address for non-keyboard characters.

piqatathat n should have the enyea over it [it does on my screen, anyway]. that character is evoked by holding down the alt key and entering 0241 on the number pad. the long dash is alt+0151.

What it is, is that you may have an email program that lets you
compose in HTML, so you see the degree sign, but it won't show as
what you intend in ascii text.  As far as I know, there is no way to
add special symbols to ascii text:-)
