Re: Q: Preventing Subscripts from being interpreted as expressions?

Claudius,

If you check the MathGroup archives several months ago you will see that I posted a
package called WollSubscripts which you can directly copy. It is a slight extension
of an idea put forward by Carl Woll. It will specifically handle your problem.
Basically, it sets the attributes of Subscript to HoldFirst, which you may do as a
quick solution. The package also has routines for clearing subscripts and displaying
information on currently defined subscripts.
