The above expression *cannot* yield the result below for neither
lowercase e has any built-in meaning nor tan^-1. However, capital E and
ArcTan have the desired meaning.

Surely you meant Element[x, Reals] and not x times epsilon times Reals?

What you have written means (Tanh times x) divided by two.

Notice the spurious set of parentheses around two times ArcTan...

You should post actual code, i.e. the output must be produce by the
input, and not a mix of fantasied notation.
