Dollar Signs
There is probably a very simple answer to this, but I am so extremely simple minded that I need help. If a dollar sign is used directly in a post, the LaTeX editor is invoked, the dollar sign disappears, and spaces are deleted. Particularly in the business math section, that can make for posts weirdly hard to decipher. I presume that there is a way to use a dollar sign without invoking the editor. Would someone please be so kind as to tell me what it is? Thanks, Jeff.

And the old system, using TEX tags before and after, works too - Just an FYI
