Lets have a go....
[tex]2\pi\sqrt{l/g}[/tex] [tex]\gamma \equiv \frac{1}{\sqrt{1  v^2/c^2}}[/tex] edit: After three attempts I got it to work!!

Displaying vectors can be tricky.
The default \vec LaTeX command produces a little arrow over the top of vectors, e.g. [tex]\lambda_j = \vec{\lambda} \cdot \vec{e}_j[/tex] If you'd prefer to make your vectors boldface, just redefine the \vec command. See the source for this image to see how the command is redefined. [tex] \renewcommand{\vec}[1]{\mbox{\boldmath $ #1 $}} \lambda_j = \vec{\lambda} \cdot \vec{e}_j[/tex]  Warren

does this always generate display mode, or can we make it do inline mode as well?

Display math:
[tex]\sum_i x^i[/tex] (inline) math, [tex]\mbox{$\sum_i x^i$}[/tex], hacked

Ambi,
Cool, I tried a few things and couldn't find anything that displayed differently! Using \mbox is a fine way to do it.  Warren

If it becomes a serious wishlist item for a lot of people, I can consider adding some attributes like mode=displaymath or mode=inline to the [ tex ] tag. Otherwise, \mbox is the easiest way to accomplish it.

Yes, we have amsmath; I only recently started using it, so I keep forgetting about it...
However, if you're proposing \text as a replacement for \mbox in this instance ... [tex]\mbox{$\sum_i x^i$}[/tex] [tex]\text{$\sum_i x^i$}[/tex]
