In the context of a two-flavour approximation we reinterpret the published
NOMAD limit on nu(mu) --> nu(tau) oscillations in terms of nu(e) --> nu(tau
) oscillations. At 90% C.L. we obtain sin2(2)theta(e tau) < 5.2 X 10(-2) fo
r large Delta m(2), while for sin2(2)theta(e tau) = 1 the confidence region
includes Delta m(2) < 11 eV(2)/c(4). (C) 2000 Published by Elsevier Scienc
