They use different fonts. I would expect InputForm to use whatever font format you have set in your preferences for input while NumberForm will use what ever font defaults you set up for output. In my case, I have input set to StandardForm while output set to TraditionalForm and see two different fonts when I copy your code into a new cell. But if I do: x=1+$MachineEpsilon; InputForm[x] NumberForm[x,{16,16}]//StandardForm both lines appear to be the same size on my system. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
