Font change

My degree sign behind the Omega gets a º – with the underline since the last font change.
Now I have to use the ° – which is an alt-248 to avoid getting an underline.
what does a paragraph look like ? ¶ ¼ ¹ ² ¾ etc seem to be OK.

Degree º °

Yes, interesting. Apparently there are two in the RTE Omega symbol table. One is the real degree sign and still prints correctly. The other is actually supposed to be º and the stock Helvetica Nue does not show it correctly in the symbol table but this high quality German font we are using at the moment does show it correct in the page. If you use the right one (first in table), it should look right in any font.  

The “right one” is “right” because it is the character actually labeled “DEGREE SIGN” in unicode font tables … not just because it comes out looking right in this font. The other one you were using, which shows as º, is labeled “MASCULINE ORDINAL INDICATOR” in the unicode font tables and in most fonts will have an underline.

Unfortunately that the ckeditor symbol table displays with Helvetica having the one off display of this character is not easily under my control. I could hack it deep in the ckeditor javascript, but then I would have to hack it back every time I install a ckeditor update … not sure I want to do that for this little missive. Once you know which one to use you know.

p.s. you know that you can type this one directly with a shortcut right? Just type ( o ) without the spaces and it is printed as ˚

Here is a list of all the shortcuts. (which were listed otherwhere before too) Notice that other popular things are on this list like copyright© and trademark as in Thinking Live™. Do you want anything added to this shortcut list mark?
