When a scalar is converted to an angle in degrees / minutes / seconds no check is performed to ensure that the digits at **MM** and **SS** positions range from ''00'' to ''59''. However addition of ''0'' (or multiplication by ''1'') will return a properly //normalized// angle. | When a scalar is converted to an angle in degrees / minutes / seconds no check is performed to ensure that the digits at **MM** and **SS** positions range from ''00'' to ''59''.
