Re: About TeXForm

First input XYZ = TableForm[...]:  In Mathematica 8.0, the output now 
differs from what you obtained in Mathematica 7.0:

\begin{array}{ccc}
   & \text{q} & \text{w} \\
  \text{1$\to $2} & 1 & 2 \\
  \text{2$\to $3} & 3 & 4 \\
  \text{1$\to $3} & 4 & 6
\end{array}

Second input XYZ and then %/TeXForm: I'm not sure what's going on there.

Third input XYZ // TeXForm: That makes sense and is unsurprising. The 
value of XYZ is _not_ the original Mathematica list {{1,2}, ...} but 
rather a TableForm object, the very same output you see from the first 
input, and so TeXForm of that is giving a TeX rendering of an entirely 
different object.
