In the transition from earlier versions to 6.0, the Cmd-8 style in the Default Format was changed from something like "Small Text" (if I'm remembering correctly) to a style called "Code", which appears to function like "Input" but is formatted differently. What is this style? -- what's its purpose or objective? -- how does it differ from Input? [And for those of you who've been following my ongoing rants against Mathematica 6 documentation -- or lack of same -- a challenge: Don't answer the above questions, but instead show me how a novice or ordinary user could find the answer to them, using what knowledge they might be expected to have, and the Mathematica Help menu item. You'll find that looking for "Input" in the Find Selected Function menu command brings up an immediate and informative answer. Looking for "Code", however, brings up 356 entries -- spread over 36 pages that you have to click through in sequence -- and this list is not alphabetized.]
