gensymb – Generic symbols for both text and math mode
Provides generic commands \degree, \celsius, \perthousand, \micro and \ohm which work both in text and maths mode. Various means are provided to fake the symbols or take them from particular symbol fonts, if they are not available in the default fonts used in the document. This should be perfectly transparent at user level, so that one can apply the same notation for units of measurement in text and math mode and with arbitrary typefaces. Note that the package has been designed to work in conjunction with units.sty.
This package is part of the was bundle.
