I've been away for a while, so I'm a little behind on the times. I have just noted the distinction between \frac{2}{b} and \dfrac{a}{b}:

\frac{a}{b} = $\displaystyle \frac{a}{b}$

vs

\dfrac{a}{b} = $\displaystyle \dfrac{a}{b}$

The \dfrac command line is much easier to read than the old one. And

\int \dfrac{a}{b} = $\displaystyle \int \dfrac{a}{b}$

just doesn't look right.

I realize most of the commands are going to be the same as it was when I first showed up here (however many eons ago!), but is there a specific type of LaTeX that we can look up to find better looking results?

Thanks!
