David,

Both can be used correctly on my system. However the sub prefix could  
be aligned a little lower (eg half the character height) for my taste.

Also I thought in previous versions that hovering the pointer over  
palette items gave the item name in tooltip fashion which I found  
useful.
That does not work now.

One possible reason on my system is that I have magnified the  
standard palettes to make reading & selection of items easier but I
cannot believe this should be the case.

Also searching the documentation for a quite a few minutes did not  
identify the palette items in question.

(Even though there is a Prefix Operator defined and there are "Names  
of Symbols and Mathematical Objects" & "Mathematical Notation  
Characters"  sections in Help.)
