    The feature with LaTeX is great but somehow I’m constantly having troubles. For example, formulas with square brackets doesn’t seem to be rendered correctly, e.g. $latex [] $. Where can I find an info on what is allowed to do within the latex environment?

    Did you read the FAQ on LaTeX?

    Can I put Math or Equations in my Posts?

    Your question prompted me to play with square brackets. And then I did something I’ve been meaning to do for a while: I put out a post illustrating some HTML and some latex. That post is http://rip94550.wordpress.com/2009/01/18/happenings-latex/

    In particular, I have found that I can use square brackets in latex in either of two ways.

    instead of [ stuff ], you can put curly braces around the whole thing: { [ stuff ] }

    or, just as we have \left( and \right), we we can use \left[ and \right]

    I hope this helps.
