Thank you. It works. But it sure takes a lot more key strokes than
simply doing control-shift-T on the spot.

"9.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (November 20, 2012)"

Clear[f, x];

In the text cell below select (highlight) the portion
"TraditionalForm[f[x] == E^x]" and use the menu command: Evaluation |
Evaluate in Place (or its keyboard shortcut--Command+Return on a Mac).

This is a test of using TraditionalForm inside a text cell such as for
an equation like TraditionalForm[f[x]==E^x]

Or paste the output of the following into a text cell

f[x] == E^x // TraditionalForm
