Hi John,
Slight correction: I pushed the numbers farther to the right
as opposed to centering them underneath the H/L. Remove the
spaces and insert ~H~-10~, which moves the text 10 units to
the left as was described in example 4 from the equations page:

res_at_cnHighLabelString = "H~B~~C~~H-10~$ZDV$~E~"
res_at_cnLowLabelString = "L~B~~C~~H-10~$ZDV$~E~"
You may have to adjust the -10 to suit your needs.
Best regards,
Adam
