============================================================ gensymb – Generic symbols for both text and math mode ============================================================ Walter Schmidt Keiran Harcombe email@example.com This LaTeX package provides generic commands \degree, \celsius, \perthousand, \micro and \ohm, which work both in text and math mode. The package should co-operate flawlessly with the well-known units.sty. Various means are provided to fake the symbols or take them from external symbol fonts, if they are not available in the default fonts used in the document. The package makes optionally use of upgreek.sty. The style files can be unpacked by running the particular installation script (.ins) through LaTeX. The files will be created immediately in the appropriate TDS directory tex/latex/was, if this directory exists and the DOCSTRIP tool is properly configured -- otherwise they are written into the current directory. The documentation of a package can be generated by running the particular .dtx file through LaTeX. ==finis

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.
