Hello notebook Gurus: I plead for some direction. I can get an expression to be made into a "boxes" by somthing like this: g = ToBoxes[Nest[1 + 1/# &, y, 7]] So far, so good. Now I have a list in MatrixForm, that I want to make into "boxes" also: a = {1, 21, 311, 4111, 51111, 611111, 7111111}; (* here is what I want *) a // MatrixForm (* this is no good!@#$% *) g1 = ToBoxes[a, MatrixForm] It will only take members of (the list) $BoxForms. Can you point me to the solution? Thanks in advance. Regards..Roger
