Hi Richard,

Yes, use the "Notation Package" (you can search for this in the docs).
The actual function you will want to use is probably "InfixNotation".

It's a bit weird though since you have to paste a skeleton of your
call to InfixNotation
from a palette, and then fill in the box asking for your operator.

I haven't done this in a while, but it's all described in the docs.

Chris
