    LaTeX: Accents in math mode

    To type the letter 'å' in normal text more in LaTeX, one can write:
    Code:
    \r{a}
    (if you enble the correct package, you can type a normal å as well)

    But how do i use the character 'å' in math mode? The rules are different for characters in mathmode, for example here's how to type 'ä':
    Code:
    $ \ddot{a} $
    What is the command for a ring?

    Most of you americans here probably haven't encountered this problem.

    Code:
    \dot{a}
    looks acceptable, but I'm not really satisfied. It should be a ring.

    EDIT:
    Code:
    $\stackrel{\circ}{a}$
    technically works, but looks horrible.

    EDIT2: Problem solve using the \text command
