Angstroms in LaTeX
Some time ago someone asked how to obtain the symbol for Angstrom units
using LaTeX. Well its not elegant but:

$
{\buildrel _{\circ} \over {\mathrm{A}}}
$

is generated by: {\buildrel _{\circ} \over {\mathrm{A}}}

I suspect some of the braces are redundant.

\buildrel _\circ \over {\mathrm{A}}
Works too.

Problem is this is math forum nobody uses angstroms.

There is a simple command to produce a circle above a letter, but it doesn't look to good above a capital A. Click to see the code:

$\r{A}\r{o}$

This is another one, math-style, and seems to work well for A too:

$\mathring{A}\mathring{o}$

It is "proper" to unslant your A.

$\r{\rm A} \r{\rm o}$

Then use the addition above, still a lot shorter :)

easier: just use \AA

you don't need mathmode or anything

hm seems it only does work without mathsurrounding in german version as i use miktex/latex or maybe i installed a package that supports this command

The  tags are only required on this site. In a LateX document it requires no such tags (and the \text{} should not be needed other that in math mode).
