    Hi

    I would like to 'math' something (put $ around it) but I would like to not to be italian as things get when you 'math' them. How to do so.

    [tex] $CH_3COOH$ [/tex]

    An example.

    To type $ means that now there is comming something mathsy, then when you make another $ then it means that it stop there. Then when you surround something with $'s then it looks as though you have written it with italian.

    the $ $ environment in Latex is a standard shortcut for inline math. Not the PF latex display system, but the real latex typesetting program.

    I don't think its possible to undo the bold typeface, unless you change style files maybe? Not sure.

    Putting something in [ tex ] ... [ /tex ] is like putting it between $ ... $ or \[ ... \].

    If you don't want it to be italic, try \mbox{...}.
