Hi Guys,

I'm trying to select ribose atoms in RNA, which are labelled C1*, C2*,
etc. However vmd, or at least Graphical Representations, doesn't like
the asterisks. I try:

type C4*
name C4*

and it says:
"The atom selection you typed could not be understood"

Is there some escape character for the asterisk?
