This is not a question but a hint.
When you need to enter the symbols for degrees minutes and seconds try this.
Degree symbol, $B!k(B - Hold down the Alt key and enter 0176 from the keypad
(NumLock must be on) release the Alt key and $B!k(B appears! (blue used for
These final two avoid using the apostrophe or quotation marks, which may be
reversed by MS Word and other programs when the program thinks you are typing
a quotation mark (so called $B!H(BSmart Quotes$B!I(B - see!).
Minute or prime symbol, $B!l(B - Enter 2032 from the keypad (NumLock must be on),
then hold down the Alt key and type x (the 2032 will be changed to $B!l(B)
Second or double prime symbol, $B!m(B - Enter 2033 from the keypad (NumLock must
be on), then hold down the Alt key and type x (the 2033 will be changed to
The only problem is if the prime or double prime follows a number without a
space, the keystroke interpreter tries to interpret the entire number string,
which doesn$B!G(Bt work, so you might want to set up a custom shortcut key.
However, if you are patient, the end result looks like this.
21$B!k(B 15$B!l(B 24.56784$B!m(B N
81$B!k(B 24$B!l(B 14.64532$B!m(B W
Try this - set up a keystroke macro so you can generate $B!k(B $B!l(B $B!m(BN and $B!k(B $B!l(B
Then, you can just fill in the degrees minutes and seconds.
