Hi Helen,

thanks for your mail.

As I have said on Thu, 29 Nov 2007 11:34:54 +0000 (UTC) the quotation 
marks were not in the Mathematica expression but were introduced by the 
copy and paste process from Mathematica to the e-mail.

The FontColor problem was solved by removing my local copy of Default.nb 
(which dated from Mathematica Version 5.2). This explains why the 
FontColor did not work under Linux but under Windows. Under Windows a 
different Default.nb is used.

Thank you very much and kind regards,
