This is rather tedious but possible start a text cell type as we know a=a=5 and b=b=7 so a+b=a+b now select the part a=5 and press CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER (evaluate in place) and then repeat this for b=7 and then for the right handside of a+b (without the equal sign) you will get the wanted phrase yehuda On 7/20/05, symbio <symbio at has.com> wrote: > A basic question, but I can't seem to get it based on mathematica's > instructions for writing "inline text".
