# A suggestion for improving appearance of inline tex

Can vertical aligning of inline tex (but without using itex) be set to 'middle' so that text is aligned well? Like:

$$V = K \int_R \frac{dQ}{r_i}$$, where $$r_i = \sqrt{(x - x_i)^2 + (y - y_i)^2}$$ and $$dQ = \delta dx_i$$

If the text and images were all set to 'vertical-align: middle', then it should look a lot better. And it's a simple change.

Try the $tag. 3. Mar 12, 2008 ### awvvu Yeah, but that squeezes everything together too tightly. [itex]V = K \int_R \frac{dQ}{r_i}$, where $r_i = \sqrt{(x - x_i)^2 + (y - y_i)^2}$ and $dQ = \delta dx_i$

If the elements of a paragraph with tex in it can be vertically aligned together, then it should look a lot better without much effort.
