Re: Re: [Mathematica 6] Bug in Labeled, Center align option

Why put "123" inside a list?  The examples seem to work fine without 
that, e.g.:

   Panel[{1, 2, 3}, "123", {Bottom, Right}]

Moreover, some funny things happen if you use a single, un-listed 
placement argument.  Thus

   Panel[{1, 2, 3}, {"123"}, Left]

does give a label at the left side, but the label is {123} with the 
braces shown -- as I would expect since the entire 2nd argument is to be 
the label, and that 2nd argument is indeed a one-element list.


   Panel[{1, 2, 3}, "123", Left]

displays the legend 123 to the left and without any braces.
