This is happend when trying to read rtf string from database to richtextbox. If the string contains degree symbol with Bookman old style then it will changed.  But, if the symbol is in century, it can be displayed properly.

According to the RTF specification (, \~b0A means "non-breaking space (\~), followed by the characters b0A".

To get the character at unicode codepoint b0 (= 176 decimal), use \u176A    This means "the character at codepoint 176 (degree sign), or if that is unavailable the letter A".
