🐌. Native speaker of American English. Linux user. Familiar with several programming languages in the procedural, OO, and functional paradigms.

Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

comment Superscript prime symbol
@OleksandrR.: The Derivative confusion only occurs with an apostrophe, not \[Prime]. The asker wanted to be able to use unprimed and primed in the same expression.

+1 for making the formatted output usable as input.

comment Superscript prime symbol
That causes q to display as q^\[Prime]. But you could instead use InterpretationBox[SuperscriptBox[name, "\[Prime]"], Symbol[name <> "\[Prime]"]].

comment What are \[InvisiblePrefixScriptBase] and \[InvisiblePostfixScriptBase]?
@kguler: So it seems like the Prefix one is meant as an invisible base character for sub-/superscripts that are typeset before the conceptual base character. But the Postfix one is still a mystery.
