I use DocumentTools:-Tabulate to display a matrix of numbers while coloring them according to some condition.
(line DocumentTools:-Tabulate(M, color=((M,i,j)->`if`(M[i,j]>3,....) below ... please note the output is not loaded for some unknown reason).
The fact is that the matrix appears with black characters meaning 'color' doesn't work.
In a second attempt I convert matrix M into a matrix of strings and use now
I get now the desired result with some blue and red numbers.
So converting to strings could be a workaround.
But think to matrices where elements would be algebraic expressions, for instance
M := Matrix(2, 2, (i,j)->exp(x^i)+cos(x*j))
and that we use the coloring scheme is color=((M,i,j)->`if`(i+j>3, "Red", "Blue")
Converting M to a string matrix will display the element [2, 2] in red and the others in blue, but what you get then is a no longer a 2D pretty output but, literally, things like exp(x^2)+cos(x*2)
The "convert to string" workaround is thus far from perfect.
Is the fact that 'color' only acts on strings a "normal and known" behaviour?
Is it possible to change the color of the font for non "string type matrices" ?
