    [Insert menu] - [Symbol] - scroll down a bit and it should be there.

    On mine the shortcut is Ctrl + @, Space.

    I use a lower case "o", then highlight it, Format menu, Font, then select the superscript option

    think I might set up a short cut though as I use it a lot

    Using the degree symbol looks better. Remember to always put a space between the number and the units! Of course if one wants to be true correct you should quote all temperatures in kelvin.

    No. It just that Kelvin is a better scale to work with.

    It's the same scale, just made a bit more accessible for working with 'everyday' temperatures by shifting all the numbers 273-and-a-bit units. :confused:
