Hi Greg, and welcome!
You got to the "label" doc,
> 1. Where is the doco of label parameters %a %n etc.
and it says "See atom properties for a detailed list of atom properties that
can be included in labels"
which leads you to
The table there has both new and old syntax,
label %[xxx] † †label %x
If you are running the Jmol app, both its window and the console window

Then you have the Jmol Math and the control structures as you have found.

That's Ok, that's why we have this list for
