    Re: Degree symbol input

    In my emailed version, Kermit's degree-sign now comes across loud and clear 
    just as it should.
    What's more I can now see that the accent over the e in his surname is not 
    a grave, as I had surmised, but a circonflexe. Whatever that may do to the 
    way that you say it.

    In reply to your post [NavList #13997]
    Dear Paul,
    in your referenced post, you wrote :
    "In Kermit's messages, whether viewed by email or the web site, the
    degree symbol doesn't appear. I see only a ? (question mark). And in his
    sig the name is spelled "Cou?tte" (a ? symbol between "Cou" and "tte"."
    Well, again things look a bit more complicated in the sense that they are 
    not "systematic",
    ... as an example, in my post [NavList #13895]:
    all characters correctly on the web (at least for me on 2 different Web 
    Browsers MSIE and OPERA) : just look at the bottom part of this post under 
    the PART TWO header (lower half of PART TWO) where both the degree symbol 
    and my name show correctly, while
    ... as an other example, in my subsequent post [NavList #13974], both the 
    degree symbol and the spelling of my name fail to show correctly ...
    Why ? Full mystery ...
    Just for the fun of it, I am again entering a "degree" character now. Here 
    it is on its own following line :
    Before submitting this current post, I can currently read it as a degree 
    cheracter sign in my window. How will it show when available for public 
    display ? Still a mystery to me : 50% chances ity will show as a true 
    degree sign, and 50% chances it will show as a question mark in a smal dark 
    diamond shaped window.
    Same for the spelling of my Last name, I just have to wait until I can see 
    how it has turned out ...
    Meanwhile, thank you again for your "kind and peaceful" :-)  comments, and
    Best Regards
    Antoine M. "Kermit" Couëtte
