Hi Miguel, Contrary to what the documentation center claims about the default behavior of *MatrixForm*, i.e. "Elements in each column are by default centered", the elements are aligned on the left of each column, and using the option *TableAlignments" does not help either since the option is dysfunctional in version 6.0.1. See the tread, "TableAlignments broken in Version 6?" for more information: http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2007/Jun/msg00536.html We are left with using *Grid* to get more or less the expected output. Grid[m, Alignment -> Right] See the following file for some experiments. http://homepages.nyu.edu/~jmg336/mathematica/TableAlignmentsIsBroken.pdf Regards, -- Jean-Marc
