For the record, you can also "fix" this problem using the following file-local customization:

#+OPTIONS:   ^:{}

I'm a regular LaTeX user, but find that escaping underscores (with '\') gets tedious when cutting and pasting multiple file names and/or variable names that include them.

With the above option, "before_after" is left as is, while "before_{after}" has "after" set as a subscript. See section 12.2 of the documentation.

One thing that I'm tripping up on is that I'm trying to list data base

names that have underscores, e.g. prc_tms.

And the 'second word' is coming out subscript: 'prc[tms'] field

I realize this may be a feature and not a bug... but how to turn it


Escape the underscore with a backslash: prc\_tms. Similarly, ^ produces
a superscript whereas \^ produces a caret. And for something completely
different, \alpha produces &alpha; which is rendered as the first letter
of the Greek alphabet etc.

This notation is TeX-inspired: Carsten is a scientist, he uses TeX/LaTeX
for papers and he uses org-mode for notes, so it was natural for him to
adopt the notation.
