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?

Use quote marks.


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


  • with hashtags


If you add quote marks, you can get

  • without hashtags


  • with hashtags


And there you have it, problem solved! :D

  • without hashtags

F_"total" != F_"net"

  • with hashtags

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