Joe,
> You don't say what computer you're using
I'm using the computer on my desk. Why does this matter?
I also didn't say what kind of chair I'm sitting on or what kind of
bread I had with my sandwich this afternoon.
Sorry for being a smart ass, but I don't know why the computer I'm using
matters.
Thanks for the information about Maxima. From the screenshots, Maxima,
when ran with teXmacs, looks like Maple.
