What’s wrong with centigrade for degrees C? (as
noted by Charles Miller in "Corrections," HCN, 3/7/05). After all,
the scale covers 100 degrees, from ice to steam at sea level. I
suppose it was invented by somebody called Celsius; I prefer the
more explanatory centigrade, or just °C. Being corrected for
using that is nonsense; I shall continue to call it centigrade.
