This is not dramatic. French keyboards have a standard degree symbol
on them, Spanish keyboards have the masculine ordinal. This character
is often confused, just like notations of degrees/minutes/seconds
using ASCII quotation marks instead of prime symbols.

In an email not intended to be typographically rendered and not
speaking about this character, let's be tolerant. We've all
understood, there's no confusion given the context.
