They should then convert naturally to LaTeX. For example: In[1]:= TeXForm[Subscript[\[Epsilon], 1]] Out[1]//TeXForm= \epsilon _1 Of course, you needn't type the whole Subscript[\[Epsilon], 1] thing in verbatim; there are shortcuts that you get used to. The new V7 palettes are very helpful in this regard. Mark McClure
