... or any other quantity raised to any other power.  Of course this is
silly in a spreadsheet, where one wants to identify a measurement.

"m" is OK, but "m^2" gets auto-'corrected' to "M^2". Likewise "Cm^2",
"In^2", "Ft^2", "Inch^2", and so forth.

It's embarrassing that I don't see how to turn off this behavior.

Tools → Options for Auto-correction… → Click the Options tab → ☐ Start
every sentence with a capital letter

I /thought/ I had done that (hence the embarrassment). Now I find that I had clicked the box above 
(so the embarrassment is compounded).

You can also just type m², then you don't need to change any settings. And
it looks better.

I never thought about that! For decades, through many spreadsheet programs, my habit has been to 
treat text cells like formula cells. For me, learning that it's not necessary represents a 
conceptual leap. ;-)  Thanks.

Every day is a school day.  Thanks again to both of you,
