tinytim, I think you are using those smilies a little bit too much.

Let sleeping dogs lie! How dare you? how could you? how are you? fie on you! and pie! You should be ashamed! You need colour in your life! You need glasses! you need salt! Smilies aren't just for Christmas!

I prefer latex it's clearer, but I can see why some people might prefer the alt keys.
[tex]\int\frac{x}{x^2}\,dx[/tex] I don't think you can do fractions with those things anyway, and it makes things harder to read in straight text.

use these characters to name files and folders for example. Regards, Hans

You should all do what I do, being monumentally lazy, I type in whatever maths term the person is discussing into google bring up wiki usually then cut and paste anything that is relevant. Or if it's simple stuff just do it myself. Much easier.
For example cutting the polar coordinate equations for the Navier stokes equation out of wiki and replacing math tags with tex tags is a lot easier than actually typing them out.

Can anyone not read any of the characters in this signature?

Hmmm, how will I know if I can't read them?
P.S. I love your avatar.

What I'd like to see is that the 'white' area (at least on my monitor) that the latex is contained in would be the same color as the background color (that light bluegray)it wouldn't stand out as much as it is now, and would be incorporated as 'part' of the text (less distracting).

there's nothing on the 'howtolatex' page(by clicking on any latex formula on any post)

The LaTeX code renders as a PNG graphic, I believe IE browsers prior to V7.0 will not render PNG transparency without a JavaScript fix.
