What yield strength to assume from unknown W-beam?

I am doing an analysis on an existing structure. Is it safe to assume an existing W-beam (W10x68) is A992 steel with Fy=50ksi?

Why does this table come up as one of the first hits in google when I search for W-beam beam properties showing A36 steel, with Fy being only 36ksi? I thought A36 steel is primarily for steel plates?
