I'm a relatively new user of Mathematica.  I'm somewhat surprised to
find out that entries such as xt (same as Subscript[x,t]) is not treated
as a symbol.  It many cases it would seem appropriate to treat this as
single symbol.  Is there a way to set the default settings to accomplish
this?  Is there a reason why I wouldn't want to do this? Thanks for your

Larry O.
