```I am new myself, and trying to learn.  I went to
http://search.wolfram.com and searched "Trig->True" under "The Document
Center."
There was only 1 result.  It pointed to a Mathematica 3 example.

Denominator[Cos[3*x]/Sin[2*x]]
1

Denominator[Cos[3*x]/Sin[2*x], Trig -> True]
Sin[2*x]

Apparently, this can make a big difference on what one is expecting for
I "think" it is because Mathematica is not using "Denominator" directly,
