Re: Using \[Breve] as a substitute for underscore

Thanks Carlos for bringing LetterSpace to our attention. It shows that WRI
can add some extra characters if they wish.

I am still eagerly awaiting the day when WRI will similarly supply us with
'PrimeCharacter' and 'DoublePrimeCharacter' that display at the correct
height and don't sit on the floor. Then users will easily be able to use
some of the most common notation in math books.
