While I definitely understand your reasoning here, for myself, I
would prefer to have the ability to easily toggle display of the
In/Out tags.

=46or my normal workflow I prefer having the In/Out tags
displayed. I often find I want to re-execute something in the
course of working with a given notebook. Perhaps simply to
change what data I am plotting or to change some minor
parameter. Mathematica of course makes it easy to do this by
simply editing an existing cell and re-executing. The In/Out
numbers make it easy for me to determine when I have done this
and easily use results of something I had not specifically
assigned to a variable.

But once I've adjusted things to my liking for say a particular
plot, I sometimes want to share that plot with a colleague who
doesn't use Mathematica. A simple way to do that is select the
cell and "print" it to a PDF file on Mac OS X. But for this plot
I do not want the In/Out tags to show up. Hence the desire to
easily toggle whether they appear or not.
