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 $'s then it looks as though you have written it with italian. 4. ### franznietzsche the$ $environment in Latex is a standard shortcut for inline math. Not the PF latex display system, but the real latex typesetting program. I don't think its possible to undo the bold typeface, unless you change style files maybe? Not sure. 5. ### CRGreathouse 3,497 Putting something in [ tex ] ... [ /tex ] is like putting it between$ ... \$ or $...$.

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

6. ### CRGreathouse

$$CH_3COOH$$

$$\mbox{CH}_3\mbox{COOH}$$

CH3COOH
