LaTeX problem

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. $$CH_3COOH$$ An example.

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{...}.

$$CH_3COOH$$

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

CH3COOH
