May you please advise me what is the difference between "ToBoxes" and "MakeBoxes"? I read in Mathematica manual and unerstood that the only differerence is that "MakeBoxes" generates boxes without evaluation of input...So is that all the difference? I saw also some examples where on lhs is "MakeBoxes" and on rhs is "ToBoxes" when I just changed "MakeBoxes" into "ToBoxes" (and vice versa) the Mathematica gave me some errors.... So could anybody explain me with a simple practical example with explanation? Thank you very much George
