�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

[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]


[math]\cancel{That's exactly what I need!}[/math]


Thank you again.

Thanks friends for your suggestion it work on windows but what about ubuntu? please discuss some more tricks like "2 power 2".

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.



  • “2 to the power of 2”: [math]2^2[/math] renders as [math]2^2[/math]
  • ”45 degrees”: [math]45^\circ[/math] renders as [math]45^\circ[/math]

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
