You should use ":=" instead of just "=" if you are defining a function. 
Please look at SetDelayed in the Help browser, especially the further 
examples. I can't see how you get v[0] = 01. I get v[0]. The subscript may 
be typed as Subscript[t,1] or t Ctrl- (i.e. the letter t followed by 
simultaneously pressing control-minus).
