    Why LaTeX looks like [tex]\iint~dxdy[/tex] instead [​IMG] ??

    Are you trying to do this? [itex]\iint~dxdy[/itex] ... inline? If so, use itex instead of tex .
    Unfortunately, it appears to be truncated with displastyle [itex]\displaystyle\iint~dxdy[/itex].
    In that case, maybe it's best to start its own line:
    [tex]\displaystyle\iint~dxdy[/tex]

    I think Krizalid is asking why the default LaTex background is white, instead of matching the rest of the background. Is there a way to change the background color of the LaTex areas?

    Ah, I think he meant the transparency. You can use Firefox, it works, whereas IE does not display the correct transparency. :frown:

    I use Firefox all the time, and to tell the truth, I don't experience any difference between the 2 LaTeX above. :biggrin: Yay for Firefox. o:)

    (But, as I remembered, Greg or Chroot had finally succeeded in making a transparent background a while ago. Hadn't he? :uhh:)

    IE6 has problems with PNG transparency, but there is a workaround.

    you mean there's no antialiasing?

    So that's what that word means?

    My suggestion is to convert to Firefox or other, not only is it virtually identical to Windows Explorer in every way, but it is not as prone to security issues that the most popular explorer is(ie most virus's, trojans, and other forms of malware tend to target the most prolific Explorers security issues) But it comes with an automatic active spell checker and some really useful free add ons. Ad blocker being one, although for some reason it doesn't work on mine :/

    Go on go Firefox, once you go Mozilla you never go back :wink:

    it's not that long before firefox will be also able to cure cancer and aids.

    Imagine the memory it would use when it does all that!

    If it's the transparency that's not working, please try to use another browser that isn't broken. If it's the slightly different anti-aliasing (meaning one looks smoother than the other), let me know. There are many knobs I can turn to adjust how the final LaTeX output appears.

    Ahh I was wondering what this question was all about. They looked exactly the same to me.
