To my eye, what you see when you set your preferences for output
cells to display in TraditionalForm looks nicer. And it seems
simpler to set these preferences than creating a special
function for this purpose. The only potential issue with setting
output preferences to display TraditionalForm is it affects all
output cells instead of one at a time.
