# �How can I enter a degree symbol?

## Recommended Posts

brian, you can click on the math, or just hover the mouse over it and see what the code that went into it was (its quite nifty :P )

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

$\text{\sout{this is crossed out!!!}} \sout{and this is not}$

$\text{\sout{this is crossed out!!!}} \sout{and this is not}$

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

$\cancel{That's exactly what I need!}$

Thank you again.

If you’re using a forum that supports a layout language like LaTeX:Math, such as hypography, you can use that language. The forums HTML software, then, will display your expression as a graphic your browser agrees it can display.

Examples:

• “2 to the power of 2”: $2^2$ renders as $2^2$
• ”45 degrees”: $45^\circ$ renders as $45^\circ$

You can find some pointers on using LaTeX:Math in this thread, or at many tutorial and reference websites. My favorite of these are Wikipedia's Help:Displaying a formula and John Forkosh’s LaTeX tutorial
