Murray, I did respond privately to your previous email, but never heard back from you. Maybe one of us got sucked into a spam filter, or maybe you decided to ignore my mail because it was based upon the presumption that this was similar to your previous problem related to preferences http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica/msg/a0a8c07c980da3d4 But...I'm not out of ideas. Here are a couple of things to try...neither will solve your problem, but they could give us some valuable clues... * In the help browser, try evaluating cells in... + Demos->Notebooks->Buckyball Construction + Notations->...Functions->Notation Does either case evaluate correctly? The former notebook uses the Demo stylesheet...the latter has a private stylesheet. I'm checking for the possibility that the choice of stylesheet affects the behavior. * In a new notebook (not the help browser), choose the menu Format->Style Sheet->HelpBrowser Now, type in some text to be evaluated in that notebook and try to evaluate it. Does it work? Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
