Vinh,

Script E

The symbols available are given in the palette  menu> File > Palettes > 9
CompleteCharacters.
Script E is in Letters>Script
You can copy it into your notebook by clicking on it;
also, when the curser over it you will see two ways of typing it in given in
the bottom bar of the patette window:  esc scE  esc,  and \[ScriptCapitalE].

Making Subscript[x,y] into a symbol
I'll do a little more.

<< Utilities`Notation`

A panel will appear.
Use this to construct
    Symbolize[< 2D form of Subscript[x,_]>]


For  information about this technique look up in the Help Browser,  Add-ons
> Extras > Utilities > Notation Package
