Homework Help: What's wrong with LaTeX on Physics Forums?

  1. Apr 7, 2007 #1
    I can't get LaTeX to newline on these forums. The following code produces the LaTeX output shown below:

    This\ is\ the\ first\ line \\
    This\ is\ the\ second\ line \\


    This\ is\ the\ first\ line \\
    This\ is\ the\ second\ line \\


    Isn't "\\" the newline command? Why isn't it working?

    I think it needs to be [/tex] at the end not [\tex]. Just a guess, not sure if that's the problem.

    No, unfortunately that's not the problem. :(

    newline doesn't work at PF (nor does the equation reference system, for that matter)
    You have to make separate tex-lines instead.
