    Odd Request from a Physics Teacher...

    Just had a helpdesk call from a Physics teacher, wanting a font which has horizontal lines (overscores I suppose you'd call them) above the capital letters. Anybody know of such a font?

    As an ex-Physics teacher I assume (s)he wants to type in statistical or quantum equations???

    If you are using Microsoft Word then Insert --> Symbol contains every letter with a bar above it. When I taught physics I used to create a shortcut combination for the letters I often used to make the process quicker.

    I also saw this on the web doing a quick google

    Excellent - what a swift response! I await the teacher's reaction - it's another one of those "Don't rush..." jobs. He began the phone conversation with "It's me again, trying to pose you a question you can't answer!" so you can tell he has a highly-developed sense of humour.

    Thanks very much for your help.
