    Not exactly sure how powerful \text is, but in case it doesn’t work or doesn’t do what you want, try \mbox instead. It’s just a box that, within a math environment or not, uses the font of the surrounding text.

  2. It’s soooo ugly seeing variable names in formulas written without \text{} or \mbox{}… I think it’s one of the most common mistakes…

    nice post!

    To my clone when he comes to this site: \text requires including the amstext package. (Yes, comments are the monological part of blogging.)
