I'm going to try using Mathematica to typeset some mathematics 
because I know that my students would benefit from being able to do 
the same., and they'll need someone who can answer their questions, 
etc. etc.

I'm pretty comfortable with some things (e.g., Mathematica's 
recognition of latex commands for most characters), and now I'm ready 
to push the envelope a bit.

Q1:  How can I typeset a table or array of information (e.g., list of 
variables with definitions) so that information in one column is 
centered and information in another column is aligned flush left?  I 
know exactly how I would do this in LaTeX, but I find no information 
on how to do this in Mathematica.

Q2.  How can I embed a Quicktime movie into a Mathematica notebook 
(e.g., so someone with MathReader can play the animation)?

That's all for now.
