The way Mathematica (on a Mac) handles carriage returns within an input cell is strange. For example: In[1]:= 2+ 3 Out[1]= 5 In[3]:= 2 +3 Out[2]= 2 Out[3]= 3 This was different in earlier versions. What is the rule used for handling carriage returns? The real bad thing is that in some cases Mathematica does not understand input which is generated by Mathematica itself. It has happened several times when I have used the command Copy Output From Above to generate an unformatted input cell from a rather long output, that Mathematica has interpreted the input erroneously, because of carriage returns. (This happened with version 1.2. I do not have enough experience with 2.0 yet). Why not just neglect carriage returns? Kjell Blotekjar
