You can get the Mathematica 3.0 front end to display the coordinates of the location of your mouse pointer within a 2-D graph by doing the following: 1) Click on the graph, so that its bounding box appears. 2) Move the mouse pointer within the graphic. 3) Hold down the Mod1 key (Unix). The x-y coordinates will be displayed in the status area at the bottom of notebook window. I think the equivalent keys for Windows and Macintosh are Ctrl and Command respectively, but don't quote me on that :-). -- P.J.
