Description Daniel Grigoras 2015-01-22 16:29:59 UTC
The bslash (\) does not treat the underscore as a normal character. How can I have the underscore treated as a normal character?

By the way it's possible to write variable including underscores by quoting with double-quotation marks, e.g., `"abc_de_fghijk"'.
Prefix `italic' if you want it to be slanted like normal variables.

Ok, placing the text separated by underscores between "" does the trick.
