You could always use something like Superscript[M, \[Prime]][i] // TraditionalForm I have always thought it was a deficiency of Mathematica that there was not a special prime character that placed the prime at the correct level. There is a prime (and double prime) character that is entered by esc ' esc or \[Prime]. However, the prime sits on the floor instead of at the correct level. x\[Prime] So this is generally useless. Primed symbols are extremely common in both textbooks and research papers. The should be easily available, and could be, without having to resort to Superscript or bring in the Notation package. -- David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ "Krzysztof Lebecki" <lebecki-hates-SPAM at ifpan.edu.pl> wrote in message news:fb5olv$92s$1 at smc.twtelecom.net... > Hi everybody, > > > > I want to make a plot with cute axis labels.
