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.
