    Yes, this is correct. Except that the glyph for degree is not/should not
    be the same as the superscript o (one is evenly round, the other more oval).

    Also, in plain text (like this message or using the characters available
    from the keyboard) it is not possible to write correctly the plural of
    these forms : Les N<sup>os</sup> 1 5 de votre revue .
