I thought we discussed this before. GridBox has 
AllowScriptLevelChange->True. So, use either:

Column[{Integrate[(f[x] + g[x]), {x, a, b}]}, AllowScriptLevelChange->False]


Column[{Style[Integrate[(f[x] + g[x]), {x, a, b}], ScriptLevel->0]}]

The first option above colors AllowScriptLevelChange red, but works.


Thanks Carl. At my age I'll probably ask again - unless
AllowScriptLevelChange is a named option for Column and Grid and there is a
link to it on the Column, Grid and ScriptLevel Help pages.
