I suspect that the piece of this puzzle that is making the front end wig out is the fraction bar, though I cannot be absolutely certain why. I was not able to reproduce the error message you describe on a Mathematica 4.0.1 front end running under X Window/Linux. Changing the font used with TextStyle or something similar won't help because the fraction bar is drawn from the Math fonts that come with Mathematica and are used regardless of choice of text font. When you say "doesn't work," does that mean that the front end does not create a cell containing the graphic? If so, what is returned by evaluating the expression above? -- P.J.
