comment How to type a capital 'E' in Mathematica 9 using 'ToExpression' and 'TeXForm'?
Thanks and fair enough. Something you can do if you don't like Mathematica's output is to use TeXForm or "Notebook to TeX" conversion to convert a Mathematica Expression or a whole Notebook to something (or close to something) you can use in a TeX source file after you are done with your computations.

comment Mathematica 8 and window names for modified files
@ragfield: it is something I miss on Mac OSX compared to the Windows version. As other have explained, on Mac OSX, there are other clues about the unsaved state, but they can be a little subtle at first.

comment Mathematica 8 and window names for modified files
@Matariki : you are right, but under certain lighting conditions it can be missed. Moreover, when the window is not on the forefront, the notebook icon next to the title is dimmed anyway so you cannot see a difference. With this system, there is also no difference in the Window list of the FrontEnd.

comment Surprises simplifying simple polynomials
Note that for simple expressions such as polynomials in one variable, comparing them with an ExpandAll is as effective as Simplify.
