Hi Stephen,
	I just want to make sure we're on the same page first:  these 
substitution codes only work when using the 
Actions...Label...residue...custom dialog (i.e. not from other ways to 
place labels, such as the "label" command or by using the selection 
inspector).  That said, the example works for me.  If I have SER200 in 
1qti selected, and I cut-and-paste that format into the labeling dialog 
and hit OK, the residue is labeled "wt S200" in the graphics window.  
What's the behavior when you do this?
