Try this:

MakeBoxes[h[i_], form : StandardForm | TraditionalForm] :=
 InterpretationBox[#1, #2] & @@ {SubscriptBox["h",
    MakeBoxes[i, form]], h[i]}

Hi all,

after executing this on v7.0

h /: MakeBoxes[h[i_], StandardForm] := SubscriptBox[h, MakeBoxes[i,

evaluating h[4] results not in an h with a subscript, but in Global`h
the expected subscript. Is that intentional? This code is very
close to an example in the documentation for MakeBoxes...
