One way to get rid of this problem is - use parenthesis.."(" ")"

The character which represents "sqrt" will be something like "V"

(without any horizontal bar)

sqrt(sqrt(sqrt(5))) can be written as V(V(V(5)))

otherwise not only the length of the "sqrt sign" would be a problem but

also

the height of characters following that...

e.g. in V(2 + V(V(V(V(V(V(5))))))) the height/size of 2 and 5 cannot

be same....
