The following yield predictable results. In:= D[a[0] a,a] Out:= a[0] I thought maybe the symbol a[0] will look better if I used an 'a' with a subscripted '0' instead. But to my surprise the following... In:= \!\(D[a\_0\ \ \ a, a]\) yielded... Out:= \!\(\* RowBox[{\(a\_0\), "+", RowBox[{"a", " ", RowBox[{ SuperscriptBox["Subscript", TagBox[\((1, 0)\), Derivative], MultilineFunction->None], "[", \(a, 0\), "]"}]}]}]\) How do I get the subscripted 'a' to work as intended ( like the a[0] )?
