    I'm trying to control a basic output in Mathematica, but with little
luck. Whenever I get a number smaller than a certain threshold (that I don't
know which is) Mathematica outputs jus a "0.", and not the number. Also, it
would rather write 0.00000654 than 6.54x10^6. Is there a way to modify the
default styles in Mathematica to:
    1) Actually write a number of the kind 6.5435 x 10^-19
    2) make it give all results smaller than a certain threshold (say,
10^-1) in scientific notation?
