# LaTeX source code

Whenever I use latex in my posts, I get the source part of it too. I believe we can post without that part appearing in the post. How?

Can you give an example ?

I don't see a problem, for instance, with this post :

You dont see it? maybe its a browser problem.. anyway, heres what I see before the equation :

"The following code was used to generate this LaTeX image:

$$ds^2 = dx^2 + dy^2$$

LaTeX code reference');">:"

It kinda messes up the format..

I only see the "following code" part when you actually click on the latex picture.

Which leads to the obvious question: which browser are you using, and on what platform?

Perhaps it's a Javascript problem. When you click the LaTeX image, do you get a popup window showing the code?

dx, you may have JavaScript disabled, or configured in some other non-standard way. Do you have any problems with another sites?
