On page ten of the Mathematica v5.2 Tutorial the last equation is: 1 + x^2 + x^4 + x^5 /. x -> 3 But in the actual Tutorial notebook, the -> is a single character that is typed in by ESC->ESC and the font is shown to be Courier New. When I copy the equation and paste it into MS Word, the font changes the right arrow to Mathematica1Mono so remains a single character, because the standard Windows true type Courier New has no right arrow. Mathematica installs "Mathematica1Mono" font along with others. Apparently Mathematica also has a special version of Courier New which does have a right arrow. Have other Mathematica users found problems when trying to produce reports that equations copied from Mathematica have the fonts changed? If a copy of the Word document is forwarded to a colliege or a publisher, doesn't that cause problems, especially if the publisher wants to use their own brand of fonts? I know there are ten options for the Copy As command and "Text (add whitespace)" seems to be the option that eliminates the Mathematica1Mono and converts the right arrow to two characters, ->. Is that the answer for copying to Word? Skillman Hunter
