Clearly you understood the essence of the question. For my immediate purposes that is very helpful, since I'm currently conserned with typesetting of non-executable text. Thank you. I would still like to know how to use that notational form in executable text, as well as to be able to change from one form to another globally through stylesheets. It is unfortunate that format and content are so tightly bound in the current implementation of Mathematica. It's certainly a challenge to create a general means of presenting mathematical expressions based on content. http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-MathML2-20031021/ -- "Philosophy is written in this grand book, The Universe. ...
