    Confounded. Help?

    Hey,

    I'm getting an error message with this code:

    \[ \left[
    \begin{array}{cccccc}
    0.04688 & 0 & 0 & $\ldots$ & 0 & -0.01563 \\
    0 & 0.04688 & 0 & $\ldots$ & -0.01563 & 0 \\
    0 & 0 & 0.04688 & $\ldots$ & 0 & 0 \\
    $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & $\ddots$ & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ \\
    0 & 0 & -0.01563 & $\ldots$ & 0 & 0 \\
    0 & -0.01563 & 0 & $\ldots$ & 0.04688 & 0 \\
    -0.01563 & 0 & 0 & $\ldots$ & 0 & 0.04688 \\
    \end{array} \right] \]

    I've narrowed it down to line 6, with the following error message: "Missing $ inserted$ ... Help?

    i don't think we use $ signs for anything here. plus we use [tex] [/tex] tags as opposed to \[ \] tags

    are you using LaTeX code in some other application?

     \left[ <br />
\begin{array}{cccccc}<br />
0.04688 & 0 & 0 & \ldots & 0 & -0.01563 \\<br />
0 & 0.04688 & 0 & \ldots & -0.01563 & 0 \\<br />
0 & 0 & 0.04688 & \ldots & 0 & 0 \\<br />
\vdots & \vdots & \vdots & \ddots & \vdots & \vdots \\<br />
0 & 0 & -0.01563 & \ldots & 0 & 0 \\<br />
0 & -0.01563 & 0 & \ldots & 0.04688 & 0 \\<br />
-0.01563 & 0 & 0 & \ldots & 0 & 0.04688 \\<br />
\end{array} \right]

    is produced by:

    \left[
    \begin{array}{cccccc}
    0.04688 & 0 & 0 & \ldots & 0 & -0.01563 \\
    0 & 0.04688 & 0 & \ldots & -0.01563 & 0 \\
    0 & 0 & 0.04688 & \ldots & 0 & 0 \\
    \vdots & \vdots & \vdots & \ddots & \vdots & \vdots \\
    0 & 0 & -0.01563 & \ldots & 0 & 0 \\
    0 & -0.01563 & 0 & \ldots & 0.04688 & 0 \\
    -0.01563 & 0 & 0 & \ldots & 0 & 0.04688 \\
    \end{array} \right]

    You should consider using TeXaide when creating a LaTeX object this size.
