I do not know of a way that any of our routines can do this. AutoCAD may be able to do it in some of their fonts. You would have to check their manuals or help files for this information.

You need to use a true type font such as Arial and type in the following sequence: Hold your ALT key and type 0178

Another common one is the degrees symbol which is ALT 0176

Hope this helps.

or if you are using the simplex.shx style, try "\u+2082" after you type in "2", when you complete your sentence and hit enter , voila.
