Frank, I think you misunderstand my point. I'm not saying put TraditionalForm in the TeX file. I'm saying use TraditionalForm in the notebook. Or in other words, put into Mathematica what you want to see in the final document (ps, pdf, or whatever you're creating from the TeX file). So "sin(x)" in a Mathematica notebook translates to "$\sin(x)$" in the TeX file. This is rendered as "sin(x)" in the final document. And "Sin[x]" -> "$\text{Sin}[x]$. And "sin x" -> "$\sin x$". This is sometimes referred to as WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). Though there are many ways in which Mathematica and TeX greatly differ. So I wouldn't go that far. But the general idea holds. When deciding what to put in the notebook, don't think about what TeX you want to produce. Think about the final document you want to produce. -Dale On Jun 8, 2005, at 6:15 AM, frank wrote: > "Dale R.
