Remember, you can take advantage of the ISO 8859-1 characters that
are, or resemble, science/math characters:

   ¬	&#172;      Not sign
   °	&#176;      Degree sign
   ±	&#177;      Plus-minus sign
   ²	&#178;      Superscript two
   ³	&#179;      Superscript three
   µ	&#181;      Micro sign (Greek letter mu)
   ·	&#183;      Middle dot
   ¹	&#185;      Superscript one
   ¼	&#188;      1/4
   ½	&#189;      1/2
   ¾	&#190;      3/4
   Å	&#197;      A ring above (Angstroms)
   ×	&#215;      Multiplication sign
   Ø	&#216;      O oblique stroke (could be a null set symbol??)
   ÷	&#247;      Division sign 

The upcoming HTML 3 will have a more comprehensive repertoire.
