Using single quotes (without $) was all I needed to change to get the degree symbol to appear. Thank you!

Now I'm wondering why using single vs. double quotes makes a difference... what's important, though, is that it works.

...Actually, I may have written that prematurely. Although I can get the degree symbol, I still can't get the angstrom symbol. \AA and \r{A} were suggested but neither worked. Any ideas why not?

After a lot of trials I found this that works

set (0, "defaultaxesfontname", "Helvetica")
 set (0, "defaultaxesfontsize", 28)
 set (0, "defaulttextfontname", "Helvetica")
 set (0, "defaulttextfontsize", 28)
 z=[char(195) char(133)]


I am not sure if you need all of this or just part of it.

Cut and paste seems to work on linux (at least on my machine).  If it
is an issue with the
deficient Windows rterminal, you can try to write an m- file and
execute it instead of entering
it iinteeractively.
Also with TeX you should do single quotes and no "$" signs:
title('\deg ',"interpreter","tex")

should work (it soes on my machine).
