Hello MathGroup:

Solving a recent problem I had, Maxim mentioned that this string:

Subscript[\[Alpha], 23]"

can be used in the Find-Replace dialog by its evaluated equivalent
using this string:


He called this "linear syntax".

Since I will have other expressions that I need to convert into a form
like this, I tried to look this up in the help documentation. No luck
when trying these pages:


Can anyone tell me what this is called in the documentation or where I
can find documentation describing it?

Thanks in advance.
