    Curly braces between MATH tags cause unknown error.

    Hi:
    I am sending the whole text bellow:

    Hi:
    In the book The Theory of Finite Groups: An Introduction, by Hans Kurzweil and Bernd Stellmacher, New York, 2004, in section 1.6, Products of Groups, there is Exercise 3:

    Let G be finite. Suppose that every maximal subgroup of G is simple and normal in G. Then G is an Abelian group and  \{ \} , where p, q are primes.

    END OF TEXT

    'and [LaTeX ERROR: Unknown error] , ' should be replaced by 'and MATH_TAG \{ \} /MATH_TAG, '

    Would you be so nice to tell me what to do?

    EDIT
    More simple than that: the following text:

    ]MATH[ \{ ]MATH[

    causes LaTeX ERROR: Unknown error. I wrote inverted square brackets on purpose, only here.

    We're using [tex]*insert latex here*[/tex] as a "temporary" fix.

    Note I've edited the quoted post to use tex tags

    When I use [tex] tags I get an error:

    [tex]\Delta P = \rho g \Delta h[/tex] ----> \Delta P = \rho g \Delta h

    [tex]\Delta P = \rho g \Delta h[/tex] ---> \Delta P = \rho g \Delta h

    edit: math tags are working again (Even in part)? That's news to me. But using tex tags still seems to solve your problem

    Re: Curly braces between MATH tags cause unknown error.

    Thanks a lot. In the Latex Help forum, I've just seen someone posted a forum-wide announcement, regarding this matter. Do you know where it is located?

    And, if you don't mind: what's the latex string for 'normal in', as in H normal in G?

    This thread is now in the LaTeX area of MHF, look about six threads down and you will find what you want.
