# Definition of \overline and height of the line

Hi,

how is \overline defined? I was only able to find references to
\@@overline. Especially, what determines the distance between the a and
the line in \overline{a}? The distance between the line and the symbol
is too large in mdsymbol which I want to fix.

Thanks
Sebastian
