In Mathematica you can overwrite characters by first of all typing them next 
to each other in the usual way, and then selecting each block of characters 
that you want to shift (left or right), and using ALT-LEFTARROW or 
ALT-RIGHTARROW repeatedly to nudge the block to wherever you want it to be.

For instance, here is the Dirac equation that I created by nudging a / 
leftwards so that it sits on top of a \[PartialD]:

     RowBox[{"i", " ",
         BoxMargins->{{-0.6666666666666666, 0.6666666666666666}, {0., 0.}}],
        RowBox[{"-", "m"}]}]}]}], ")"}], "\[Psi]"}], "=", "0"}],
  TraditionalForm]]]], "Text"]

Paste this Cell Expression into a notebook to see it rendered.
