When using siunitx, by default, \SIrange{0}{10}{\celsius} will render 0 °C to 10 °C.

Is there any general way to change the default rendering of ranges to 0--10 °C (i.e., using an en dash instead of "to").

The relevant option is range-phrase. This is explained in section 5.8 "Lists and ranges of numbers" of the documentation.

Ah, dunno how I skipped over that! While we're on the subject, is there a way to eliminate the first °C after generating the 0 °C--10 °C in order to render 0--10 °C? Thanks for your answer! – user2473 Feb 7 '12 at 6:01
