Any input into a table cell is done in TraditionalForm. This is fine if the cell contains mathematical notation but if you want to just input some text the result is a lot of unnecessary gunk in the underlying cell expression. (E.g. "some text" appears as RowBox[{"some", " ", "text"}] ) You can manually edit this underlying expression to ensure that it is just text that appears in the cell of the GridBox expression but this gets cumberson with large tables. Can you enter text directly into a Table that doesn't result in an underlying expression that uses RowBoxes? Thanks. Find local movie times and trailers on Yahoo! Movies. http://au.movies.yahoo.com
