A completely useless factoid I just discovered.
I used the Windows character map to copy and paste a degree symbol (°) into my PC SMS application and sent it to my mobile phone. What arrived at my phone was the letters “Ao”.
So for those of you wondering, you can’t send a degree symbol via SMS.
Next time I will have say 2 deg not 2°
And another thing. The HTML entity for a degree sign is °
