I was about to give the txt2tags parser a little love and stumbled
again on the '°' check. I have no idea what this is meant to match. I
didn't find any reference in the txt2tags documentation though I only
had a quick look.
Also, if a '°' would be found, it would be assigned to 'struct' but in
symbols.c there is no reference in the corresponding switch case, so
that has never worked before.

I tend to remove this check if nobody complains and/or has an idea what
i was meant for.
