Original Message

Anyone know an easy way to create a symbol in Word for the mathematical term
"mean" or x-bar. The symbol looks like a minus sign sitting above a x.

I've been able to accomplish this in Frame by applying a overline character
format to an X, but any thought as to how to go about doing this in Word?
