Thank you both very much for the input. I'm beginning to realize that writing in LaTex sucks big time! You've got to have hawk eyes to keep track of all those darn round, square, curly parentheses, the slashes and the whole thing...it's awful!
Do you guys happen to know whether there's some program to write
mathematics more or less like html or ASCII and the program then compiles it or translates into Tex?
But it takes only a few hours (using the tutorial and other resources) to become sufficiently proficient to use it on MHF.
