Re: delimiters not spanning!
Well, you covered my first guess, which is the spanning options. Here's my second guess...check the value of the OperatorSubstitution option. The default value is True. I have occasionally recommended in this forum that people set it to False if they're trying to avoid inclusion of the Mathematica fonts in generated PostScript. In general, when some undesirable, non-default setting that you don't understand starts showing up in Mathematica, you can also clear all Mathematica preferences set globally (which is very likely where bad settings like this come from) by holding Ctrl+Shift while starting Mathematica. Or, if you prefer to be more selective, you can view the global options as text in the Option Inspector, and remove them one by one by changing the right-hand sides to Inherited.
