TO: William MacDonald &  Lou Talman 

While:

     Plot [ Table [ Sin[n x] , {n ,1 , 5} ]            , {x,0,Pi} ];

will not work, if you simply insert an Evaluate, it works nicely:

     Plot [ Table [ Sin[n x] , {n ,1 , 5} ] //Evaluate , {x,0,Pi} ];

I have noted that in V. 2.2.3 for the PC Mathematica will not plot with
the following


command
Plot [ Table [ Sin[n x] , {n ,1 , 5} ] , {x,0,Pi} ]
although I am quite sure that it used to do so on the Macintosh and NeXT.

I don't think that particular syntax has ever worked.  It certainly
doesn't work in v2.2 for the Mac nor in v2.2 for the NeXT.  Are you quite
certain that you didn't use

Table[Plot[Sin[n x], {x, 0, Pi}], {n, 1, 5}]

which works nicely?
