Hi

is there a way to display a text in notebook with return lines out of this heavy way ?:

show(LatexExpr(r" \
\text{ Late at night, guards on the battlements of Denmark's Elsinore castle}\\ \
\text{are met by Horatio, Prince Hamlet's friend from school.}\\ \
\text{The guards describe a ghost they have seen that resembles Hamlet's father,}\\ \
\text{the recently-deceased king. At that moment, the Ghost reappears,}\\ \
\text{and the guards and Horatio decide to tell Hamlet.}\
"))

I can't parse your request :

with return lines out of this heavy way

What do you bloody mean ?

Juanjo guessed what I meant. I meant: except this way with a somewhat heavy syntax.

In the notebook, you can display text using HTML instead of LaTeX:

text = """
Late at night, guards on the battlements of Denmark's Elsinore castle<br>
are met by Horatio, Prince <strong>Hamlet</strong>'s friend from school.<br>
The guards describe a ghost they have seen that resembles <strong>Hamlet</strong>'s father,<br>
the recently-deceased king. At that moment, the Ghost reappears,<br>
and the guards and Horatio decide to tell <strong>Hamlet</strong>.
"""
show(html(text))

This allows a better formatting using HTML and CSS. Note, for example, in the above text, that each instance of "Hamlet" is displayed in boldface.

Thanks again Juanjo, that is what I wanted.

put your text between:

text = """

your text

"""

show(html(text))

position the mouse just after the largest column of your text, and on the first line of your text. then press the "Alt" key and move the mouse down to the last line and type <br>
