Way to remember this (if you know TeX):

Coding for P-sub-ij in TeX is $P_{ij}$ (in TeX underline indicates 
following content is to be subscripted) and Shift-minus gives underline.

Evidently Mathematica stays close to this by having Ctrl-minus turn underlining 
on.  Haven't looked into how to turn it off.
