I understand the argument for it, but the subscript ‘total’, ‘net’ etc. are very common in Physics and all of them are locked to produce algebraic symbols. Rather irritating. Is there a solution?

Answer:

Use quote marks.

Explanation:

Assuming that this is what you're referring to, you can write text in between hashtags by using quote marks.

You know that you ca write something like this

  • without hashtags

total

  • with hashtags

#total#

If you add quote marks, you can get

  • without hashtags

"total"

  • with hashtags

#"total"#

And there you have it, problem solved! :D

  • without hashtags

F_"total" != F_"net"

  • with hashtags

#F_"total" != F_"net"#
