joining lists.

    hi all, this should be simple.

    I got:

    list1={ some numbers }

    list2={ some other numbers }

    Append[list1,list2] gives me { some numbers, { some other numbers } }

    Join[list1,list2]   gives me { some numbers, some other numbers }

    I want { { some numbers }, { some other numbers } }

    Actually I have found that:

    Join[{list1},{list2}] does what I want but I don't find it very elegant.

    I can live with the lack of elegance, but I wonder if there is some
other function or construction (for joining lists) that I am not aware

    Thanks in advance. Otto Linsuain.
