comment Turning evaluation off
In principles you could use Map to wrap ToString around the expressions at each side of each rule, but if you take the quote marks off, Mathematica interprets "C1.4.4" as C1 * 0.4 * 0.4, i.e. 0.16 C1. There should be some version of HoldForm that works but it seems almost impossible to define a function that performs the transformation without releasing Hold somewhere along the line.

@R.M they are assumed in the two books referenced - certainly Shaw and as far as I can tell, Stojanovic. My impression (and I am not working in an investment bank) is that many shops still just go with the Gaussian. The VaR built into Basel II pretty much assumes it too.
