I notice that when text containing an underscore (as happens frequently 
with database table names) is exported as HTML, the exporter decides to 
covert the rest of the word to a subscript.  I tried escaping the 
underscore with a backslash, but then exporting to ASCII is broken, with 
the backslash passed through as part of the text.

What's the correct way to escape the underscore so that the HTML 
exporter doesn't garble the output, without mucking up ASCII export?  Or 
is org-mode designed in such a way that users are expected to mark up 
documents for one specific output (which would be a step backward)?

You can put an OPTIONS line in you file.

        #+OPTIONS ^:nil
        Turn off superscript/subscript

or, my prefered

       #+OPTIONS ^:{}
       Works for foo^{bar} & foo_{bar}
       but not foo^bar & foo_bar

This is in "12.3 Export options" of the org manual.

Perfect!  I looked, but obviously not carefully enough (I think I was 
too focused on looking for occurrences of the word 'underscore' and 
didn't think outside the box as much as I should have).  Thanks!
