Can someone explain the difference between the variations below? I am still on Mathematica 7.0 (mac). The following produces proper latex code for a table including its headings: XYZ = TableForm[ { {1, 2}, {3, 4}, {4, 6} }, TableHeadings -> {{"1\[Rule]2", "2\[Rule]3", "1\[Rule]3"}, {"q", "w"}} ] // TeXForm \begin{array}{lll} & q & w \\ \text{1$\to $2} & 1 & 2 \\ \text{2$\to $3} & 3 & 4 \\ \text{1$\to $3} & 4 & 6 \end{array} The following produces the latex code for the table without the table headings: XYZ % // TeXForm \left( \begin{array}{cc} 1 & 2 \\ 3 & 4 \\ 4 & 6 \end{array} \right) The following produces output similar to the verbatim environment with all the latex commands turned into latex text: XYZ // TeXForm \text{ $\backslash $begin$\{$array$\}\{$lll$\}$ $\&$ q $\&$ w $\backslash \backslash $ $\backslash $text$\{$1$\$\backslash $to $\$$2$\}$ $\&$ 1 $\&$ 2 $\backslash \backslash $ $\backslash $text$\{$2$\$\backslash $to $\$$3$\}$ $\&$ 3 $\&$ 4 $\backslash \backslash $ $\backslash $text$\{$1$\$\backslash $to $\$$3$\}$ $\&$ 4 $\&$ 6 $\backslash $end$\{$array$\}$ } I would have expected all three variations to produce the same output.
