Sure, but the idea of the equation mode text feature is to allow more elaborate prompts like "HEIGHT=?" instead of an INPUT H which produces a simple "H?".

So it seems I did not overlook something and there really is no way to get a question mark into a message. That's sad... but I still got an HP41 for such things. ;-)

So enter everything as a command rather than an question:

Instead of

HEIGHT=?

use

ENTER HEIGHT:
