In 5.2, I used to be able to use subscripted variables (which were
treated as symbols) loading the Notation package and writing :
Symbolize[ParsedBoxWrapper[\(_ \_ _\)]]
It worked fine...

With version 6, the help says it should still work. But I'm afraid I
can't even try the examples in the help!

The help says :

<< "Notation`"

Symbolize[ParsedBoxWrapper[\(expr_ \_ Rule\)]]     ]]

FullForm[Subscript[MyDistribute, Rule]]

Should give:


But in 6.0.2 on my system, it gives :

FullForm[Subscript[MyDistribute, Rule]]

So there is no doubt : Symbolize doesn't work anymore...
I didn't try the other features of the Notation palette, but I would be
glad if somebody else would try the examples of
And tell if it works or not!

Thanks for help!
