Does someone know if Mathematica 5 uses the same version of the Notation package as that posted at Wolfram.com. The web page below lists several files that are not continaned in the ZIP file. http://library.wolfram.com/packages/notation/ The reason I looked at this site was to try and understand how to use Symbolize in the Notation package. This seems to be one of the most frustrating aspects of Mathematica, especially for engineers who routinely use subscripts, accents etc in their traditional notations. It seems like one mistake, like not using the palette because you copy and past can get you into unfathomable trouble - especially when using Modules. On that point - am I correct in thinking that you cant mix normal and Symbolized arguments to functions you are defining or have I made another unfathomable mistake? Finally, if the folks at Wolfram are watching is there a reason by we can have an option to Symbolize all variables in a Notebook - I would doubt there are many engineers out there using subscripts as variables.
