    Default \u escape character not working

    Hello all,

    In a java program I'm trying to display the degree symbol (small circle) in the command prompt using println(), but it's not displaying properly. Here is the statement:

    Java Code:
    System.out.println( "\u00b0" );
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Default Re: \u escape character not working

    Where are you trying to display it?
    That works (for example) when run in my Eclipse IDE, but will not work if I ran it from the command line. It all depends on what the character set of the displaying tool is.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
