Hi
I would like to 'math' something (put $ around it) but I would like to not to be italian as things get when you 'math' them. How to do so. [tex] $CH_3COOH$ [/tex] An example.

Where did you get the idea that you could "math" things by putting a $ around them? I'm not at all clear what you mean by "math" something. The Latex tutorial is here:

To type $ means that now there is comming something mathsy, then when you make another $ then it means that it stop there. Then when you surround something with $'s then it looks as though you have written it with italian.

LaTeX problemthe $ $ environment in Latex is a standard shortcut for inline math. Not the PF latex display system, but the real latex typesetting program. I don't think its possible to undo the bold typeface, unless you change style files maybe? Not sure.

Putting something in [ tex ] ... [ /tex ] is like putting it between $ ... $ or \[ ... \].
If you don't want it to be italic, try \mbox{...}.
