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:
\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:
