My approach has been to use StandardForm for input cells and
TraditionalForm for output cells. And then later (if I want to
send a PDF or printout to a colleague who does not have
Mathematica) convert the input cells to TraditionalForm.
I find it inconvenient to enter TraditionalForm directly.
Additionally, I have more confidence in what Mathematica will do
when I enter things in StandardForm than TraditionalForm. But I
find it easier to understand output in TraditionalForm
particularly things such as matrices.
