try: (all within 5 of resname S2P) and resname "Na\+"

Is 'resname "Na\+"' a correct selection? Mabe 'type Na' works too. (try it
as a new representation which selection works)

Hello Everyone,

I would like to select Na+ ions within 5A of a phosphoserine residue to
display for a movie, however the following command does not work: resname
"Na\+" within 5 of resname S2P

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get this to work?
