A few simple things:

(1) You wrap

Code:

`[tex] [/tex]`

(2) the latex symbols are preceded by a backslash \, so greek letters, for example are \alpha.

(3) ^ makes a superscript, and _ makes a subscript.

(4) You can look at the tex code in an equation by right-clicking on it and then selecting Show Math as - tex commands

(5) When you can't remember a command, like "what was the tex for an integral?", you just google: latex - integral and it will show you.

So for example the tex for

[tex]\alpha^2[/tex]

is just:

Code:

`[tex]\alpha^2[/tex]`

Try it!

Note that I wrapped CODE tags around the latex stuff you you could see what they look like - you don't want to do tht if you want latex to implement it.

(First few paragraphs are about incorporating LeTeX in your posts, then there is a short introduction to LaTeX).
