Looks like a browser issue, not one with the website...

Updating the browser on two different computers made no difference. So much for progress.

Duncan:-
'wasn't aware of your 'trick' ~ good one !. That below is a cut'n'paste from Word 2007 apart from the italic text.

Using Windows 10 with Calibri (Body) type face:-

(Alt+2300), release Alt = strange character like O with umlaut

“if you type 2300 then hold down the alt key and type x, release both and wait for a split second
it converts the 2300 to a diameter sign.” = ⌀

I found that alt+ inserts extended ascii characters, not unicode, but not the ones listed in the table at

**LINK**

for instance if I type alt+234 I get Û whereas I should get a greek omega, and the table I found runs out at 255 (8 bits)

All this talk of the diameter symbol could get confusing as this was originally an electronics article what with the same symbol being used to represent "phase" as in 1-phase or 3-phase, the layman may think you were talking about the diameter of a motorsmile p

You had me worried for a moment there, Jason ... but I think you will find that it's the Greek letter phi that's used for phase. [the cross-stroke being vertical]
