Re: OT: degree sign

That's a good question Jim as I swear that when I used the degree sign
with AHS it used to work.  I don't really read my own postings often but I
never noticed that it didn't.  I think it's the list that doesn't allow
it.  I know that I send emails to individuals and it works.  Otherwise
they would think I was crazy when I told them it was 320 today.
