Since this is an electronics forum, we are going to need to use a bunch of special symbols, such as µ for (micro), as in µF - micro Farad or ± for denoting a tolerance or degree sign ° as in 20°C

So, I've found and installed this forum extension called Special Characters and Symbols Insertion (let's call it SCSI  ;) )  by Chas Large. I would add some functionality to it, such as an Omega sign Ω  for Ohms or Π - Pi , and I have a feeling Sigma Σ and Delta Δ might also be needed :) . I'll see if I can whip up (or find) another similar extension for other, scientific or electronics characters.

OK, just added Ω, looks like with time other symbols should be possible
