None of this works on my Samsung Chromebook, an O/S based upon UNIX I think. I suppose there is a way, but WGASA, I'd never use the special chars.

The concept of a list of temperatures, or more importantly GPS waypoints is perhaps why someone might want to know that Alt + 248 makes the degree symbol.
28 is a bit less wordy than 28 degrees.
Now imagine a whole list of GPS waypoints, and the ink and typing saved!

Have you "Googled" it? It must be somewhere for you to use? Doug probably knows?

This comes from http://www.alt-codes.net/ that has ALL of them:

Alt + 132 =
Alt + 142 =
Alt + 148 =
Alt + 153 =
(couldn't find the other 2 but should be special characters on your wp program)
