Hello,

i want get letter "k" with subscript "GG". So i enter "k_GG", but i get strange formula: "k" with flipped "?" in subscript. So i must write "k_{G G}".
Is it a bug?

Why not k_"GG"?

GG is a binary operator in math (much greater than, displayed as ">>"), and if binary operators don't have an operand on either side, it's considered a syntax error. Syntax errors in Math are displayed as an inverted red question mark.

To ensure text is displayed verbatim (not interpreted as operators or named symbols), quote it.
Hence Hagar's solution.
