I don't know how to make my e-mail client read  UTF-8, but I don't
understand the problem.  In Mathematica 7.0 under Windows XP, if I want
a subscript on something inside a comment, I do exactly the same thing
as I would to make a subscript anywhere else:  type Ctrl-_ and then the
subscript, and either Ctrl-space or right-arrow to return to the main lev=

Does Unicode change any of that?
