Why not choose \$ as the LaTeX delimiter? Then there is no collision with ordinary dollar signs.
Of course, it means you still can't copy and paste directly from LaTeX documents, but with your other solutions, you can't do that anyway. Edit: Of course, then we'd have trouble writing Perl regular expressions in our posts! How does MathJax work; i.e., when does it run in the processing sequence? It seems to be a Javascript that runs on the completed page, which is long after the vBulletin parser processes the posts. In that case, I think we're stuck with 'itex' and 'tex'. I would recommend against making the delimiter some random symbol. The $ sign is standardized already, but if it can't be the $ sign, it shouldn't be some other symbol.

(Edit: If you're that attached to standard usage, doesn't it also bother you that your suggestion is a complete reversal of the default "$ for itex", "\$ for dollar sign"?)

##...## or ££...££ for itex $$...$$ for tex

I think you both mean the same thing.
A person could use either ##...## or ££...££ for itex, and it would work. Both ##…## and ££…££ would work for itex.

Why is my latex code not processed?
[itex]\frac{i \hbar t}{m}[\itex] [itex]\frac{i\hbart}{m}[\itex] [itex]\frac{i\hbar t}{m}[\itex]

By the way, you don't need the {} brackets when they surround a single character, i.e. t^{2} can be simply replaced with t^2. That will give you fewer brackets, and be easier to debug in case the numbers of {'s and }'s don't match.

a &= b\\ &=c \end{align} Tex tags are actually not necessary when the latex code starts with a begin statement, and ends with the corresponding end statement. Also, please don't post equations with lines that are that long. They are seriously annoying in a browser window. So please insert a few extra \\ to make the lines shorter.

Absolutely right, and the space broke the command \r ight.
And that with the new line separation was very motivating. Very helpful, thanks!

Hello!
I am writing because I do not know how to write the following formula in MathJax I have read this entire thread and information about extracurricular parentheses, but in this case it's not that simple. Did you have problems with habits relating to of the old system? What about tables? It is not possible to create them? [itex]\small\overbrace{a,...,a}^{\mbox{k a's}}, \underbrace{b,...,b}_{\mbox{l b's}}\hspace{10} \large\underbrace{\overbrace{a...a}^{\mbox{k a's}}, \overbrace{b...b}^{\mbox{l b's}}}_{\mbox{k+l elements}}[/itex] [itex]\small\overbrace{a,...,a}^{\mbox{k a's}}, \underbrace{b,...,b}_{\mbox{l b's}}\hspace{10pt} \large\underbrace{\overbrace{a...a}^{\mbox{k a's}}, \overbrace{b...b}^{\mbox{l b's}}}_{\mbox{k+l elements}}[/itex] [itex]\left[ \frac{X}{Y}\right ][/itex] On mathtex that gives

The fact that I forgot to define the / hspace number of the unit, but it worked for MathTex.
Thank you anyway. I will experiment a bit with the tables.
