Sorry to self reply - but I think this is a specific aspect of 
collection.cgi that I'm using to view my data.  I see that temperature is 
defined in it as Celsius.  I assume I can store whatever values I want and 
modify collection.cgi to fix this cosmetically.

Of course, if there is a more proper way to handle storing and displaying 
temperature I'd be grateful for clue.
