Hi, Does anyone know the cell style options which control how strings are displayed? As a simple example, when you enter the following in a notebook session: In:= "x" Out= x The output cell suppresses the double quotes "". This also occurs with things like NumberForm and so on. It becomes a pain when you, say, print a table of numbers formatted using NumberForm, and then copy this to a cell of a different type, where suddenly the quotes become visible. What I'd like to know is what cell formatting option is controlling the display/suppression of the quotes, so that I can add to whatever other cell types I need to use (e.g. "Table" styles). Digging in the option inspector I have not been able to find anything, and there doesn't seem to be much documentation either. thanks, Peter.
