Hi all,
The \mathring command puts a small circle above a letter, but in some fonts (namely Lucida OT) that circle is too small. So thanks to a hint by Hans and Wolfgang some years ago I use the following definition which works fine when used alone. But in maths, one needs sometimes to use it with the command \overline (or \overbar) and the result is not nice.
Can someone tell me please whether it is possible to modify the \mathring command so that th ecircle is a little bit larger, or the one I define below as \interior in order to have a correct result (more clearly said: I would like the small circle to be put above the bar which is itself above the A in $\interior{\overline{A}}$).
Thanks for any help: OK

The interior of a set $A$ is denoted by $\interior{A}$.
The interior of a set $A$ is denoted by $\mathring{A}$.
The closure of the interior is $\overline{\interior{A}}$.
Beware $\overline{\interior{A}} \neq \interior{\overline{A}}$. (This is not nice\dots).
Beware $\overline{\mathring{A}} \neq \mathring{\overline{A}}$
