# [texhax] Greek letters with superscripts in list environment

Hello,

For some reason I can't get LaTex to produce a greek letter with a
supercript while in a list environment. Is there any way around this issue?
Here is part of my file:

\begin{itemize}

\item The ratio of flow depth to grain size (A)

\item the density ratio (B)

\item the Reynolds number (Re)

\item the Froude number (Fr)

*\item shear stress ($\tau$^{*})*

\end{itemize}

This doesn't work. However with the superscript it works fine. Any ideas?

Thanks

Sam
