Yes, that was basically the question I asked. It isn't really the whole
question I should have asked. The Ctrl+9 does something I want. I'm
surprised I had not found that already. Thanks.
The other thing I was trying to ask was if I can get something such as the
following to "snap into place" in a text cell:
\!\(StyleBox[\[IndentingNewLine]RowBox[\[IndentingNewLine]{SubscriptBox["\<\
\[CurlyEpsilon]\>", \*"\"\<\!\(\[Alpha]\_1\)\[Ellipsis] \
\!\(\[Alpha]\_n\)\>\""]\[IndentingNewLine], "\<=\>"\[IndentingNewLine],
SuperscriptBox["\<\[CurlyEpsilon]\>", \*"\"\<\!\(\[Alpha]\_1\)\
\[Ellipsis] \!\(\[Alpha]\_n\)\>\""]\[IndentingNewLine], "\<=\>"\
\[IndentingNewLine], "\<{\>"\[IndentingNewLine], \
GridBox[{{"\<1\>"}, {"\<-1\>"}, {"\<0\>"}}\[IndentingNewLine],
ColumnAlignments ->
Right]\[IndentingNewLine], \*"\"\<permutation(\
\(\[Alpha]\_1\)\
\[Ellipsis] \!\(\[Alpha]\_n\)) is \>\""\[IndentingNewLine], "\<{\>"\
\[IndentingNewLine],
GridBox[{{"\<even\>"}, {"\<odd\>"}, \
{"\<none\>"}}\[IndentingNewLine],
ColumnAlignments ->
Left]\[IndentingNewLine]}]\[IndentingNewLine],
SpanMaxSize -> Infinity\[IndentingNewLine],
ShowAutoStyles -> False\[IndentingNewLine]] // DisplayForm\)
It may be wiser to simply enter that in an input cell wrapped up in
CellPrint[Cell[...]], which is what I have been doing.
