You could either change this in the InlineCell style, as you've already discovered, or you could change it in the TraditionalForm style, which would affect all TraditionalForm cells (not just inline ones). Additionally, if you prefer StandardForm in general (for example, you'd like your inline cell to be Courier, non-italicized), then you can use the menu command Cell->Default Inline FormatType->StandardForm, which changes the default form for all future inline cells you create. It doesn't do anything about the ones you've already created, though. Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
