In mathematica you cannot use underscore _ as part of a variable name as you could in other computer languages. Has anyone tried using \[Breve] as an underscore substitute instead. for example: mass\[Breve]of\[Breve]earth = 5.97*^24 or mass[esc]bv[esc]of[esc]bv[esc]earth = 5.97*^24 I kinda like "breve" because it looks like the standard underscore character. What other characters do other people uses? Steven Siew
