Hi Carl, your suggestion works fine with me. Thank you very much for your input. So in summary: 1) The FontColor problem was solved by replacing the local copy of Default.nb (dated from some previous version of Mathematica) and replacing it with a version 6 Default.nb. 2) The FontSlant problem can be solved with SingleLetterItalics->False and TraditionalForm. Thanks to all who made suggestions to my problem. Kind regards, Thomas. Carl Woll wrote: > Kevin J.
