## LaTeX issue 1

1. I have an issue with a LaTex structure. Here's a snippet:
$latex \displaystyle I=\begin{bmatrix}1&0\&1\end{bmatrix}$

When i paste this into your site and update page, it changes to this:
$latex \displaystyle I=\begin{bmatrix}1&0\ &1\end{bmatrix}$

If I write it differently, everything is ok:
$latex \displaystyle I=\begin{bmatrix}1&0\\{0}&1\end{bmatrix}$

Perhaps there is something about the character sequence 0\ that confuses your processing?
I see from other posts that others have had problems with LaTeX matrix processing and &. Perhaps the same issue?

The blog I need help with is friedfoo.wordpress.com.

2. oops: first snippet in post should have been:
$latex \displaystyle I=\begin{bmatrix}1&0\&1\end{bmatrix}$

3. aargh. your text input process kills the input sequence even when posting to the forum. I am sooo confused.

4. Here it is again withour the $latex....$
\displaystyle I=\begin{bmatrix}1&0\&1\end{bmatrix}

5. ok, here it is in "
"$latex \displaystyle I=\begin{bmatrix}1&0\&1\end{bmatrix}$"

6. $latex \displaystyle I=\begin{bmatrix}1&0 \ \ 0&1\end{bmatrix}$

7. You have to put code between backticks here in the forum for it to actually display (key to the left of the #1 with the ~ on it).

8. If you look below the Post box in the forum you'll see this:

You can also put code in between backtick (  ) characters.

In fact, it won't display at all properly unless you do that.

9. $latex \displaystyle I=\begin{bmatrix}1&0\&1\end{bmatrix}$

Thanks for the tip.

10. But the character sequence 0\ still transmutates to 0\

11. let's make that
zero backslash backslash zero mutates to zero backslash

12. I will ask Mike to take a look as LaTex is his.

13. I thought at the start this was a LaTeX issue, but it seems to be a generic issue with text input on this site. e.g. I am typing the sequence zero backslash backslash zero here: 0\

14. 0\`

15. Hmmm, doesn't work surrounded by backticks either.

16. Ma poate ajuta cineva, spunandu-mi cum se implementeaza modulul LaTeX intr-un site in care apar texte matematice?

17. Yes, this backslash zero suppor thing is killing my blog: how can I post code on wordpress?
I left blogspot.com for I believed wordpress.com had the feature I wanted.
But this is definitely a bug. Which Blogger does not have.
