CSciForm[x_] := NumberForm[ N[x], NumberFormat-> (SequenceForm[#1,"e", #3]& ), ExponentFunction->Identity ]; Attributes[CSciForm] = {Listable,OneIdentity} This works on the examples in the e-mail. The NumberFormat trick is given on p. 352 of the Mathematica book. The attributes let you do CSciForm[{3.123, 241.}]. I wrap N around x, because the exponent is always Null for NumberForm of an Integer. - Leslie Young
