How to enter direct text strings that do not get interpreted?
text.xhp
par_id337229
help.text
Some text strings get interpreted as operators automatically. Sometimes this is not what you want. If you want to write W<emph>*</emph> (a letter with a superscripted asterisk), the asterisk will be interpreted as a multiplication operator. Enclose the direct text within double quotes or add spaceholders.
