Why do two equivalent expression give different answers?

I started Mathematica and went: Plot[ Table[t^c, {c, 1, 2}], {t,0.5, 1.2} ] but it didn't like it. So i computed Table[t^c, {c, 1, 4}] explicitly in an other cell and then pasted the result into the expression as follows Plot[ {t,t^2}, {t,0.5, 1.2} ] and then it went well. So i have two wonderings. a) How come there's a difference?! b) How do i make Mathematica accept what i try to do? -- Kindly Konrad --------------------------------------------------- May all spammers die an agonizing death; have no burial places; their souls be chased by demons in Gehenna from one room to another for all eternity and more.
