Hi, and you have not found the Notation` package ? And you can't setup a definition like P2 /: MakeBoxes[P2, fmt_:StandardForm] := RowBox[{"P", "\[NegativeVeryThinSpace]", StyleBox["2", FontVariations -> {"Underline" -> True}]}] f1 /: MakeBoxes[f1, fmt_:StandardForm] := RowBox[{"f", "\[NegativeVeryThinSpace]", StyleBox["1", FontVariations -> {"Underline" -> True}]}] that's too bad.
