If anyone is familiar with Mathcad, I'd like to be able to notate
variables in a more detailed way. In engineering, we use a lot of
symbols above and around the variable letter. For example, an "x" or
"y" or "H" variable might have a "^" carat or a "~" tilde above it,
with a "o" small circle in the upper right corner. This is similar to
the " ' " prime notation used in differential calculus. Another is a
dot above the variable signifying per unit time (m = mass, m(dot) =
mass/time). Anyway, I could just type in really long subscripts, but it
would be nice to use the conventional notation for my field. Any ideas
or sites that would help?

Thanks,
Taylor

In my version (7, quite old now), you can type Ctrl-Shift-O,
then any formula inside the [], this is a valid variable name.
You can also use styles in variables (User 1 to User 7, available
when typing a variable name), and you can change their fonts.
And you can type greek variables too (but I guess you already know that
Smile ): type x then Ctrl-g to get a ksi, for example.
I think you can use Unicode characters in newer versions,
but not in mine. And there may be new tricks to get beautiful variable
names :-)
