Follow-up Comment #10, bug #52685 (project octave):

I suppose you could say it is a mess of inconsistency.  Yes, my concern is
mostly about the plaintext that is created when programmers use "help
function_name".  In LaTex there are many more ways to get the output to appear
exactly as you want and I think it is fine to use @var{} in that context if it
makes sense.

I'm starting to think that in general we should use real code segments in the
ifnottex branches so that @var{x}(i) is used rather than @var{x}_i which
doesn't make a lot of sense and requires interpreting the '_' as making the
next letter a subscript.
