    A while back someone taught us how to make that small o - yes, smaller than that - to be used when you are talking about degrees. I did a search and couldn't find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm sorry I can't make this clear, but if you know, please help - thanks

    On a Mac computer....type the number like 67 then press the option/alt key down and press the zero key. Should turn out 67.

    You can also go to the start menu, click on the search box and type in "character map". It will bring up a box that has all kinds of signs.
