Also, I found this pdf of useful mathematical constructs, that goes a bit beyond what we already have: http://amath.colorado.edu/documentat...eX/Symbols.pdf  Warren

I don't know how to get a command back to its original behavior. You could try defining a new command to act like the original \vec before you redefine it. (Or else you could leave the original alone and define a new command to act like the bold version.)

Maybe redefining \boldmath to work everywhere is the best approach here, leaving \vec alone.  Warren

I also just noticed that in IE6, the inline LaTeX images are a few pixels below the baseline of the text. In my preferred browser, Mozilla, they are exactly correct. Perhaps I need to tweak the site's style sheet to get the line spacing just right in all browsers. I'll have to think about it. In the meantime, everyone should switch to Mozilla Firebird!

Actually, scratch that  when the font size is set to "Medium" in the view menu, it's just right in IE6 too. (whew) Are any of you experiencing inline LaTeX graphics that are NOT aligned properly with your text?

Also, Ambi, you LaTeX guru you,
Can you tell me why the font size is different between these two images? [tex]\inline{ \int_{a}^{b}} e^x dx }[/tex] [tex]\inline{ e^x = \sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{x^n}{n!} = \lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} (1+x/n)^n }[/tex] Look at the e^x... does the integral sign somehow cause the font size to change, or what?

What about making a new tag, say, [ itex ] for inline tex? It gets annoying having to type [ tex ]\inline{x}[ /tex ] 10 times in a post!!!

Your right it can be annoying, when I posted a load of inline text though, I just copied the commands onto the clipboard and pasted, changing the code between the inline brackets.

Okay guys, now [ itex ] ... [ /itex ] is equivalent to [ tex ]\inline{...}[ /tex ].
Have fun.  Warren

Also, \vec now does [itex]\lambda_j = \vec{\lambda} \cdot \vec{e}_j[/itex] while \mathbf does [itex]\lambda_j = \mathbf{\lambda} \cdot \mathbf{e}_j[/itex].

And ams math environments should work now too:
[tex]a + b + c + d + e + f +g+h+i+j+k+l+m+n[/tex] [tex] \begin{multline*} a + b + c + d + e + f\\ +g+h+i+j+k+l+m+n \end{multline*} [/tex] [tex] \begin{gather*} a_1 = b_1 + c_1\\ a_2 = b_2 + c_2  d_2 + e_2 \end{gather*} [/tex]  Warren

What are all the spacers available to us? (like '~' and '\,')
(and remember, I'm a LaTeX newbie, so mentioning what they're supposed to do is nice probably should go in the .pdf too)

Is there a smaller triangle that goes well here? What's the command for the floor and ceiling functions? Am I spelling the command for omicron wrong, or is omicron identical to 'o' so there isn't a command?
[tex]\Delta x \triangle x[/tex] [itex]\Delta x \triangle x[/itex]
