*Notes about Degree symbol (°) and Word 2007:

Hold Alt and type 0176 on a numeric keypad. That always works in all Windows applications.
Also one can use Word-specific key combination Ctrl+Shift+2, Space .
To enable \degree to work in normal Word text you need to go to Office button – Word Options – Proofing – AutoCorrect Options… – Math AutoCorrect and click on Use Math AutoCorrect rules outside of math regions.

I keep returning to this page almost every week for reference. And I keep adding new interesting shortcuts, that I discover by accident.
