What is TraditionalForm? Is it what you find in math books and research articles? In fact, these are full of inexact, confusing and varied notation. 'Traditional form' is not at all the golden standard that is being claimed! Mathematica StandardForm is an important step to simple, clear and unambiguous notation - even if it doesn't look like what people are used to. David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Bill Rowe [mailto:readnewsciv at earthlink.net] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net The choice of TraditionalForm versus StandardForm in the journal really depends on the goals of the article. If the goal is to make the mathematics as clear as possible to the widest possible audience, then TraditionalForm is clearly the better choice. But if the goal is to elucidate how a particular task can be done in Mathematica, StandardForm is the better choice as it more clearly shows the underlying Mathematica code.
