Hello Steve and everybody,

Thanks for your answer.
As you are the only one who answered, I ask for more information, if you allow?

What does mean "ISTR" ?

I'm afraid I have a big problem.
If I go in the tutorial Notation/tutorial/NotationSymbolizeAndInfixNotation,
I just try the 3 first Inputs and already have an error-message: 

Syntax::sntxi: Incomplete expression; more input is needed.

So there is no doubt : The package Notation` just doesn't work on my 
computer! I tried on the computer of a colleague in the same office, and 
it works fine on his computer... could the problem be in my computer?

I use :

In[3]:= $System

Out[3]= "Microsoft Windows (32-bit)"

In[4]:= $Version

Out[4]= "6.0 for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (February 7, 2008)"

Computer : HP Compaq nx7010

(It's the version. It didn't work neither on 6.0.1)

Could other user try the tutorial examples and let me know if they also 
have problems or not? I can't believe being the only one... and I would 
like to understand...

Thanks in advance!

Florian Jaccard

I have version 6.0.1 for Windows 32-bit, and all of
Notation/tutorial/NotationSymbolizeAndInfixNotation works correctly. =
that version 6 did not work correctly.
