    As if you guys don't have enough to do...


    Latex (and any other HTML formatting) renders email unreadable.

    This:

    "Then, the speed of light is [itex]c = 1 ly/y[/itex], and [itex]g = 1.032 ly/y^2 [/itex]"

    becomes this:

    Then, the speed of light is < a href="javascript:;" onClick="newWindow=window.open('','latexCode','toolbar=no,location=no,scrollbars=yes,resize=yes,status=no,width=475,height=200'); newWindow.document.write('< HTML >< HEAD >< TI
    TLE >LaTeX Source Code< /TITLE >< /HEAD >< BODY topmargin=0 leftmargin=0 BGCOLOR=#F1F1F1 >< table border=0 width=449 >< td bgcolor=midnightblue >< font color=#F1F1F1 >The following code was used to generate this LaTeX image:< /font >< /td >< /tr >< tr >< td width=449 >< br >< br >< font face=courier >< UL >< PRE >< font color=red >[ itex ]< /font >c = 1 ly/y< font color=red >[ /itex ]< /font >< /UL >< /PRE >< /font >< /td >< /tr >< /table >< br >< center >< a href=https://www.physicsforums.com/misc/howtolatex.pdf target=_blank >LaTeX code reference< /a >< /BODY >< HTML >');" >< img src="latex_images/-6.png" border=0 align=top alt='LaTeX graphic is being generated.
