Dear Sirs/Ms:

I am learning to use FrameMaker Version 5.56. This is my third day. I am
getting very familiar with the software, however I've come across a situation
where I have to enter a formula in a table.

The formula, which is a hydraulic/air pressure formula, is as follows:

kg/cm "squared" (PSI)

As you can see, I want to enter the term "squared" as a square root using the
proper square root symbol. There is a wealth of information on mathematical
symbols and expressions, but I don't have the time to research algebraic and
engineering expressions and experimenting by trial and error. I just want to
enter cm "squared" so that the mechanics in the field can read it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
