Hi Christian,

I have added the code you suggested and now I have the names first, and the initials before the names, but the names are still separated by a semi-colon. Is it possible for that to be a comma? 

Here's the link:
In some of them, the full name displays, others the initials, but that is dependent on what is in the bibtex code and would need to be made consistent in the file. Thank you!

Hi Christian,
Thank you very much, once again. I saw that on the help page and will try it. However, I am not sure he's going to like it exactly like this. He doesn't want the names separated by the semi-colon using the last name, initials; format (ex. Eston, V. E.; Smith, C. M.; Grandy, K. L.; etc) . He wants it be first initials lastname, (use of comma after each one, no semi-colon used). I don't see a way to do that. Is that possible? He wants this: V.Y. Eston, C.M. Smith, K.L. Grandy, etc. Thanks!

So, you are just copying and pasting the mark, not the code, into the document? I am not asking about the type of editor to use.
I am updating an old file that many people have worked on. It was coded in different ways, but most do not work. I just saw one degree mark, that was just written as ° that did, but other degree marks and symbols display as question marks.

Methods used:

  • ${^\circ$
    solid or outlined bullets ° or • (these usually read as a question mark or a question mark surrounded by black)
    U+00B0 (tried this, didn't work-- for a degree symbol)

There are other items such as accent acute, quotes, etc, that are coded in this manner: {\textopenbullet}. None read correctly. File is utf-8.

Also, some of the old listings use @inbook. That doesn't appear to work. Is there another option? These are articles that were put into a book from a conference. @conference works on some, but not all of these. 

Thank you!

I just tested this and it didn't work. I didn't escape it, just typed it like this: angle of 5.3U+00B0...

That is the unicode for a degree mark. Is that what you meant?

This also does not work {\texttoopenbullet}

The open circle and bullet don't work. 

Sample listing with unicode:

Thank you, I will try that. It looked like that wasn't working earlier.
