    Typing in [tex]\therefore[/tex] gives \therefore

    Typing in [tex]\because[/tex] gives \because

    Ye, overlooked that back slash

    Of course it works:
    \therefore
    \because

    How do you type in %? My webbrowser didn't wanna display the page when I created a LaTeX formula with % in it as always when something in the LaTeX code is wrong.

    Typing [tex]\sum_{i\ =\ 0}^n f(i)[/tex] gives \sum_{i\ =\ 0}^n f(i), a Sigma sign as a sum sign. But how do you do if you want to have a multiplication sign, a Pi sign ( \Pi) that works like the sum sign?

    Is it possible to put a big cross all over the formula to make clear it is not true?

    just say "not equal to"

    Such as typing in [tex]1\neq-1[/tex] gives 1\neq-1

    Can you make some part of the expression appear in another color?

    Problems with \left and \right:

    \left(\frac{x}{y}\right)
    \left[\frac{x}{y}\right]
    \left|\frac{x}{y}\right|
    But [tex]\left{\frac{x}{y}\right}[/tex] doesn't work.

    But:

    [tex]\left\{ \frac{x}{y}\right\} [/tex]

    \left\{ \frac{x}{y}\right\}

    does.
