    How to Insert the Degree Symbol

    I need to insert the degree symbol into my output. I know that in html, the symbol is ° or °. How do I include the html in javascript? Everything that I try returns an error.

    In Firefox, you can insert a degree symbol as follows:

    Code:
    document.body.appendChild(document.createTextNode("\u00B0"));
    "00B0" is the hexadecimal value of the degree symbol's index in the Unicode character set.

    You can append it to output like so:

    Code:
    myOutput += "\u00B0";
    You may need to modify it for other browsers, but it's a start. Hope this helps.

    When trying to insert a special character in a javascript string, you must always use its unicode escape value

    \uXXXX , where XXXX is the hexa digits value of the ASCII
