When I need one I google 'degree' and copy the first degree that pops up in the search and paste it in.





here's a bunch you can use, I have lots!

I use the degree symbol a lot. I have configured Alt+d as a shortcut.

Mark,

I want to be in a position to be bored enough to start funny threads.

LOL.

alt167

Like I am going to remember that.

Is north supposed to be capitalized? (thread drift)

A spammer had provided this information, but he's no longer with us. Still, the info is probably worth leaving up here:

You can create any ascii character by holding down the ALT key while you type in the code on the number pad. The ascii code for the degree symbol is 167, so hold down the alt key and type 167 on the numberpad.

Mark, your best bet for a typing degree is secretarial school. I just don't think you have the legs for it...
