# 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 used to be part of the was bundle, but has now become a package in its own right.
