While I have not exhaustively searched Help/Documentation Center for an answer to my question, I have put forth a yeoman's effort without any success.

Does anyone know if it is possible to suppress Out= on an on-going basis within a notebook without also suppressing In:= and if it is, could you please tell me how?
