Hello, I'm new to this forum, trying to get the hang. How can I insert a degree symbol, (Alt+U0157)? Thanks for your attention to this question. Brian

Check out the wiki on this:

Degree symbol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Or, you can just copy and paste this: °

If you have Word, enable extra characters and search for the set that contains the degree symbol. (there are several )

I'm looking forward to some spirited argument over global warming here.

Which is what we use to use latex here. I.e [ math ] 0^\circ [ /math ] leaving out the spaces before and after math...

Why do easuy when you can do complicated?

[math] 0.5^\circ [/math]

Did it work? I'll post to see.

For the strikethrough:

Either write a pm to Alexander to ask if he included the ulem package in the header (which does not seem the case) or write a question in the thread on how to do it...I never used it so far so, sorry.

For latex in general I use a lot the not so short introduction to latex, you can find here for example.

also sanctus, you can use tags in [math]0^\circ[/math] example, so you can copy and paste and it just works

Thank you Alexander, by using the quote button, I see what you did:

[math]22\celsius[/math]

or

[math]22\degree F[/math][/QUOTE]

May I please send you a PM to find out how to do a strike-through?

my bad on not posting the code, ooopsie

sout seems to have formatting issues in the math mode, you can see that it works with text mode by

[math]\text{\sout{this is crossed out!!!}} \sout{and this is not}[/math]

[math]\text{\sout{this is crossed out!!!}} \sout{and this is not}[/math]

math though has a \cancel command that is meant to do just that, so you can do [math]\cancel{lalalala}[/math]
