[since my first attempt was badly mangled, i'm trying again.]

all ams document classes place equation numbers on the left
by default.  to get them on the right hand side, use the
"reqno" option:


this is explained (albeit not as clearly as it might be) in the
manual "user's guide for the amsmath package", available from


it's in the section on "options".

Subject: [texhax] Equation Numbering

Dear sir/madam,

I have written an 'amsart' using Winedt 5.3 and the equation numbers
are appearing on the left hand side as default.
Is there anything I can do to move them to the right?

I am not using the 'leqno' command and I see no reason why they should
not apear on the right hand side.

Hope you can help,
