Main Question or Discussion Point

I've been intrigued for some time by the following posts, but they all have lots of Latex errors (at least for me, Firefox/Linux).

Can anyone confirm they are broken before I make an idiot of myself in a PM, and in any case is it appropriate to PM for this sort of thing?

I see a lot of broken Latex with FireFox

[tex]
\begin{flalign}
dt\,+\,\frac{\beta}{1-\beta^2}\,dr&=&d\bar{t}&=& &d\breve{t}-\,\frac{1}{1+\beta}\,dr\\[6mm]
d\phi\,+\,\frac{\beta}{1-\beta^2}\,\frac{a}{(r^2+a^2)}\,dr&=&d\bar{\phi}&=& &d\breve{\phi}\,-\,\frac{1}{1+\beta}\,\frac{a}{(r^2+a^2)}\,dr
\end{flalign}
[/tex]
This is it fixed.
[tex]
\begin{align}
dt\,+\,\frac{\beta}{1-\beta^2}\,dr&=d\bar{t}= d\breve{t}-\,\frac{1}{1+\beta}\,dr\\
d\phi\,+\,\frac{\beta}{1-\beta^2}\,\frac{a}{(r^2+a^2)}\,dr &= d\bar{\phi}= d\breve{\phi}\,-\,\frac{1}{1+\beta}\,\frac{a}{(r^2+a^2)}\,dr
\end{align}

Heh, I am already using those equations, they seem to work just fine ;) I just wanted to see how he puts it all together, it sounded interesting, and not too far above my level. BTW it looks just as broken in Chrome.
