NotationPalette with Ersek's SubscriptSymbols package


I'm having trouble with the function NotationPalette[] from Ted Ersek's 
SubscriptSymbols package.

I installed the package in directory

  ToFileName[{$TopDirectory, "AddOns", "ExtraPackages", "Utilities"}]

per instructions (including creating the package file from notebook
SubscriptSymbols.nb).

But I had to edit the definition in it of function NotationPalette[] to 
become:

   NotationPalette[] := (
      NotebookOpen[FrontEnd`FileName[
        {$TopDirectory, "AddOns", "ExtraPackages", "Utilities", "
           Palettes", "English"}, "NotationPalette.nb"] ];)

so as to use the correct location for NotationPalette.nb under 
Mathematica 5.2.  (This is the correct place with Mathematica 5.1, as well.)

After loading SubscriptSymbols` in the normal way, if I evaluate

   NotationPalette[]

I get an error message, "The file you tried to open was not found, or 
could not be opened."

However, if I directly evaluate in an input cell the expression

   NotebookOpen[FrontEnd`FileName[
       {$TopDirectory, "AddOns", "ExtraPackages", "Utilities", "
           Palettes", "English"}, "NotationPalette.nb"] ];

then I do get the NotationPalette to open.
