Re: Label: Superscript in square brackets

The problem is that when you specify the ASCII fonts (@as) then all
subsequent text is rendered literally (I was not aware of the <esc>
exception). @as is mainly useful when you want to display the ferret
commands such as transformations (@sbx, etc) on your plot.

There is an easy workaround. Use another font, such as @sr (looks 
just like @as) for everything except the square brackets, and use,
say @im14 and 15 for the left and right square brackets. Thus:

PPL YLAB,@im14@srW m^-^2@im15


PPL YLAB,@im14@srW/m^2@im15
