unescape the url-encoded degree symbol.
Sorry KGLAD... not sure what you mean by this...
Im on a Mac if that matters at all...
tried to render text as HTML,but i dont think that is what you meant... i didnt see any "special characters" options like there is in DreamWeaver...
where should i look?

tf.text = "the freezing point of water is 32"+unescape("%ba")+" fahrenheit";
thank you KGLAD...i got your code working directly out of a new flash file, but not from the one i am working on...
maybe my variables are preventing it to work???
here is what i have:
Text="HEADING\n 128.8 MAG\n LAT LONG\n 41"+unescape("%ba")+"21N 072+unescape("%ba")+"33W";
this displays everything but the º symbol...
thank you, KGLAD.
you have to use a font that has a degree symbol. not all of them do.
im using Arial... it shows up when not in a movie clip, but inside one, even if i specify
it does not work....
there's nothing special about having a textfield in a movieclip unless you're embedding (or, need to embed) your font when in that movieclips and otherwise, not.
KGLAD...im still working on the symbols part, but another issue arose...
do you have any insight on creating a timeout command on the timeline if the user does not click on any button?
I have certain spots in my timeline where i want a time-out to occur after 5 seconds of the user not clicking anywhere or doing anything.
I am familiar with mouse-listener functions... but only used them for something that i was going to make timeout after an already pre-determined time limit... not governed by the user's actions...
you can use the setTimeout() and/or the setInterval() functions.
