Error messages of the kind shown above are emitted by the front end's typesetting code. It is an indicator that a formatting action somehow created a state that should not have occurred. The causes for this type of message vary from situation to situation. Technical Support is willing to accept such reports from users: http://support.wolfram.com/FrontEnds/System/InternalError.html regardless of registration status or service level. The "what you were doing" portion of the error message may be a bit vague. It is not necessary really to describe what you were evaluating. Rather, you should take a look at what editing keystrokes you may have made before the message was displayed. Another thing to keep an eye open for is if it occurs as you're evaluating a cell or group of cells. It may be that the problem is occurring as the front end attempts to format the box form of the output to a cell. -- P.J.
