Discussion the last couple of days has lamented that $X_\rightarrow$ works fine, but $X_\longrightarrow$ dies with an error. The fix is trivial: instead of plain.tex's \def\longrightarrow{\relbar\joinrel\rightarrow} just use \def\longrightarrow{{\relbar\joinrel\rightarrow}} The extra pair of braces in the definition provide the necessary protection, and it seems to me, should be retrofitted into all glyph definitions to avoid nasty surprises like the current situation produces. Is this unreasonable, or am I overlooking some case where it will fail? ======================================================================== Nelson H. F.
