Alain:
Evaluate needs to be at the top level of the first argument of plot to have
the effect that it has in your first example.
I had defined f=#^2& earlier.
This is what happens in your first example
In[11]:=
Hold[Evaluate[f[t]]]
Out[11]=
Hold[t^2]
Now the second:
In[12]:=
Hold[{Evaluate[f[t]], 0}]
Out[12]=
Hold[{Evaluate[f[t]], 0}]
If you rearrange the the expression, you get what you want:
In[13]:=
Hold[Evaluate[{f[t], 0}]]
Out[13]=
Hold[{t^2, 0}]
