I'm trying to make a plot in a tex document within pythontex and I set the label within pycode tags to be

self.label = r'A: {0} B: {1:.0f}$\AA$'.format(self.aaa,self.bbb)

I don't want the Ångström symbol to be in italics, but I don't see how to prevent it. The various suggested methods here don't seem to work inside pythontex, and I don't know how to apply "Define additional math operators to be typeset in roman" to my situation.

Any guidance would be appreciated! Thank you.

    How about removing the $, or $\textrm{\AA}$? – Werner Sep 29 '13 at 5:29
  • Right! textrm gies me KeyError: '\\AA' but simply removing the $-signs gives me the Å-symbol without italics. I must have missed guessing that in the long list of things I tried. Thank you very much! – Gerhard Sep 29 '13 at 5:48

\AA should be used as-is in text-mode. Dropping the math-mode characters should solve your problems.
