   The ASCII 'programming' convention is \sqrt{n}.

   The labor intensive way to do an approximation of the symbol in an ASCII 
monospaced font is to make the bar as an underline on the line *above* the 
numbers, like:

           V 2   = 1.41421...

  using of course a capital 'V' in front,

   but it can get messy fast, and if the recipient's mail client doesn't 
handle monospacing well, it turns right into a dog's breakfast real 

   But, it's the Thought that Counts, at any rate!
