Hello kloof,


         I tried both ‘\AA’ and ‘{\AA }’ in text strings that

I fed to octave with the ‘interpreter’ property of the

text object set to ‘tex’.  Neither one worked in

my octave-3.2.4.


       Currently octave implements only a limited number

of tex-capabilities, and does not implement a ‘latex’

interpreter property.


       It seems like physics journals of the past fifteen

years or so are getting away from angstroms.  Most

scientific publishers prefer that you use an SI unit,

such as nm (nanometer) or pm (picometer).
