When I tried it again, I also was not seeing the problem any more, but I remember before when I tried it, no output was coming but, I should have mentioned that a button came up and I click on it and get the same help page again.. So I was feeling silly, wondering what happened and if I was dreaming something, but I knew I was not dreaming but can't reproduce it. Then someone very smart (like everyone else is here) was kind enough to send me email and guessed what I have done to cause this, and he is so right, I remembered now what I did to cause the problem. I have copied the command ColorData from the help page to my notebook (too lazy to type when I can just copy/paste), and now the problem I had is reproduced. Here it is, I put a screen shot showing it: http://12000.org/tmp/090807/silly_me.PNG I have to remember to learn better how to copy/paste stuff from the help pages, some of the text in the help pages have some hidden markers or something embedded in some of that display to cause this. Sorry for the confusion, false alarm. Nasser
