How to display LaTex

  1. Jul 14, 2008 #1

    When posting, I am trying to display maths formulae using LaTeX.
    It is so much easier to read.
    When I hit 'Preview post' all I see is the raw LaTeX;

    3i\theta + 2ik\pi = i\frac{\pi}{2}

    Is there something else that I need?

    the closing tag should be [ /tex] (delete the space to make it work)

    3i\theta + 2ik\pi = i\frac{\pi}{2}

    Brilliant, just like HTML.

    Thanks robphy
