    What is the formatters for beginning a new line in Latex? According to the notes two backshlashes "\\" should do the trick.

    Yes, but it's never worked for me either.

    It works if you put it in an array. Then a double back-slash gives a new line.

    [tex]
    \begin{array}{l}
    x = y \\
    a^2 = b^2 \\
    \mathop {\lim }\limits_{\delta x \to 0} \frac{{\delta y}}{{\delta x}} \\
    \end{array}
    [/tex]

    Code (Text):

    \begin{array}{l}
     x = y \\
     a^2  = b^2  \\
     \mathop {\lim }\limits_{\delta x \to 0} \frac{{\delta y}}{{\delta x}} \\
     \end{array}

    The only time that has worked for me is when I am actually writing to a TeX file (that will be made into a PS or PDF document).

    Thank you,
    I found the answer on the Latex examples page:
    [tex]\begin{align*}Line\ one\\Line\ two\end{align*}[/tex]
