[Fwd: Subscripts??]


Hi Gadi Oron,

The easy answer to the question you ask below is to download the latest
version of Notation from http://www.wolfram.com/~jasonh/Notation.html

Basically the error message was meant to be analogous to the error message
one gets about the spelling of variable names. E.g. if one enters

xtemp=1;
ytemp=2;

you will get the message

General::"spell1":
    "Possible spelling error: new symbol name ytemp is similar to
existing symbol xtemp."

This is what I had originally modeled my error message on, however there
was too much confusion about this among users so I dropped it in later
versions. (Possibly I should have had a more detailed error message). Note
this change was included was included in Mathematica 3.0.1.


Cheers,

   Jas
