When we went through our initial round of UI translations, ten years
ago, our subsidiary in France flat-out insisted that U+00B0 DEGREE SIGN
be used for the "numero" abbreviation, and not U+00BA MASCULINE ORDINAL
This was even after I pointed out the availability of both, in both the
MS-DOS and Windows code pages (we didn't support Unicode yet), and even
after I pointed out that this was a UI display issue and had no bearing
on what customers might type.
No, they said. It's DEGREE SIGN.
