SubscriptBox

FilledSmallSquare SubscriptBox[x, y] represents in input and output.

FilledSmallSquare Inside \( ... \) SubscriptBox[x, y] can be input as x \_ y.

FilledSmallSquare In a notebook a SubscriptBox can be created using ControlKeyLeftModified-RightModified or ControlKeyLeftModified_RightModified. ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified moves out of the subscript.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm and InputForm, SubscriptBox[x, y] is interpreted on input as Subscript[x, y].

FilledSmallSquare The baseline of SubscriptBox[x, y] is taken to be the baseline of x.

FilledSmallSquare SubscriptBox[x, y] is usually output with y in a smaller font than x.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm, explicit SubscriptBox objects are output literally. You can use DisplayForm to see the display form of such objects.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.9.10.
