Not sure if this is useful.... Below is a text cell with three lined up equations. You can copy and paste this into Mathematica, then use the cell Menu and Show Expression to view it normally. Cell[TextData[Cell[BoxData[ FormBox[GridBox[{ {GridBox[{ { RowBox[{ RowBox[{ RowBox[{"2", "x"}], "-", RowBox[{"3", "y"}]}], "=", "5"}]}, { RowBox[{ RowBox[{ RowBox[{ FractionBox["1", "2"], "x"}], "-", "y"}], "=", "1"}]}, { RowBox[{ RowBox[{ RowBox[{"2", "x"}], "-", "5"}], "=", "12"}]} }, GridBoxAlignment->{"Columns" -> {{"="}}}]} }, GridBoxItemSize->{"Columns" -> {{ Scaled[1]}}}], TraditionalForm]]]], "Text"] Hit control and return to add a new line I keep that handy for when I am typing systems, etc. TOM
