I have noticed how people will write out the word 'degree' because no one is aware how to make the '' symbol. It is simple: press down the 'Alt' button, while doing that punch in '167', release the 'Alt' button, voila the degree '' symbol will appear.

Another symbol is the cents '' symbol. Simply press down the 'Alt' button with one hand, punch in the numbers 155, release the 'Alt' button and like magic the cent '' symbol will appear.

I hope this helps someone, it is just a little knowledge and timesaver.
