Yes.  That's what I understand from your response.  Thanks!

Sorry for the confusion.
I just thought that you gave me a way to use macro with underscore.

I assume that the key phrase is "anywhere Org markup is recognized".
Link format doesn't allow Org markup, right?

Ah!  Great idea.  That's what I'm looking for. Thanks.

hmm.  just checked the source.  org-use-sub-superscripts is only for display.
org-export-with-sub-superscripts is just for exports.

I was gonna just by-pass or disable subscript parser all together when
org-use-sub-superscripts is nil but it doesn't seems to be a good idea, does it?
