    Some little help more with Latex, please

    Hi all:

    When you write in plain format and then you use [math and etc. to write mathematics, the formulae in maths appear larger than the plain writing' fonts.

    On the other hand, if you want you can use \mbox { } to write nicely plain text and with the same fonts size as maths formulae, BUT you have to close with [/tex] every few words otherwise when you send it there appears an error:"Message too large" or something simmilar

    My question: is there any way to define something like \article or whatever that'll allow me to write both plain writing and maths formulae WITHOUT having to close lines every few words with [/tex] in order not to get the "too large" message?

    Thanx

    I could tell you to select the appropriate font and size in the advanced editor, but I would rather you did not as that often makes your post unreadable when editing/quoting it.

    This is in "Times New Roman" size "4" and embeded LaTeX looks like this: \sin(x^2)+z

    Thanx for the answer. Yes, that size in maths is closer to plain writing's, and yet it still appears "out of focus" when edited: can you see that your formula seems to "float" a little over the line on which the plain text rests?

    I'm asking since I think there must be something to do about this because papers and books written and edited in LaTex do not show these discrepancies.

    We are not writting our posts in full LaTeX, all that the LaTeX add-in to vBulletin does is render the stuff between the [tex][/tex] tags as a GIF. This is what a number of systems (the equation editor in Google documents and that used by WordPress) do and all seem to have trouble with the horizonta allignment.

    There are no-line LaTeX systems that allow the writting of large documents but these render to PDF or PNG (?) format that would have to be included as a attachment and not be edditable.
