and StandardForm and TradionalForm I get your problem with 3.0 on  
NeXT but not with 3.01 on the Mac

On the NeXT I dealt with this by selecting the first integral and  
using the menu item

I then tried adjusting the vertical alignment by nudging (Control +  
Arrows). There is a bug in Nudge(reported to wri), and I needed  
finer control, so I used one nudge up and then look at the cell  
expression and increased the BoxBaselineShift to -.3.
