Might also be useful to mention that the [tex][/tex] environment doesn't like "returns" or "enters" or "carriage returns" or "line feeds" in its code, unlike regular LaTeX. That's what gives you those annoying <br> symbols in the result. Example:
[TEX]
\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-x^{2}}\,dx=\sqrt{\pi}
[/TEX]
yields
But
[TEX]\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-x^{2}}\,dx=\sqrt{\pi}[/TEX] yields
I just noticed that in one of the posts made here: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...ms-180257.html
It may have to do with the way it is interpreted by the site that I'm using to power the [tex] brackets...I'll look into this soon.
Just a reminder for those who already have MathType -- you can use it here on MHF, and it formats the math properly. We have instructions on our website describing how to do that.
