RE: Typesetting summation and product symbols


Raul,

I think the answer is: because that's the way it is. Mathematica just
formats the limits on the sum and product symbols differently in Inline
cells than in Input cells. I think that WRI probably decided that Inline
cells were probably already too cramped to put the limits above and below
the symbol. I don't think there is anything you can do about it.
