bar over a superscripted symbol

jsmeyer's picture

I would like to display a common notation for the average of the square of quantity, that is, a bar over a symbol with associated superscript.( E.g. x squared with a bar over both the x and the superscript 2). If I look hard enough, I may be able to find how to do that with LaTEX commands, but I was hoping someone might know a way to use Scientific Workplace 5.5 commands to effect that set of symbols.
Thanks in advance for your help.

 that worked beautifylly, Mr. MacKendrick, as you knew it would. Thank you for pointing out what I should have figured out for myself. I completely forgot about decorations.

Thanks again.
