    If you type [math]\not\equiv[/tex] then you will get \not\equiv.

    how do you do that? you type the math tags and codes in it, but LaTeX doesn't transform it into symbols. then you type exactly the same thing, but this time it does.

    (somehow when i quoted your message, LaTeX changed the first code. I'm confused)

    try noparse tags: [tex]x \ne 2[/tex] is produced by:


    [noparse][tex]x \ne 2[/tex][/noparse]

    Test: [tex]\int x^2~dx[/tex]

    well, that seems to work, thanks. it's just that when i quoted Plato's post, no such tag was there. but i can work with this

    In fact, Iíve found out that \not puts a slash over the immediately following character, whatever it might be. This is useful for something like

    \color{white}.\quad\color{black}\frac{3}{\not8_{\,  4}}\times\frac{\not6^{\,3}}{\!7}\ =\ \frac{9}{28}

    It only does one character at a time, though. Thanks for the help.

    was produced by:

    [noparse][noparse][tex]x \ne 2[/tex][/noparse][/noparse] !!?
