Maths Formula Test

[tex]\Large f(x)=\int_{-\infty}^x e^{-t^2}dt[/tex]

Just testing that a funky new plugin to render maths formulae is working :)

Couldn't resist squeezing in another example:

[tex]\sum_{r=1}^{n}r=\frac12 n(n+1)[/tex]

  3. Hmm... it does rather stretch the meaning of "funky" doesn't it?

  8. According to the typographical pedants who wrote the specification, it should be typed as [tex]\LaTeX [/tex] or LaTeX in ordinary text. Nice though

  9. Phew - I've finally found out why plus signs were getting chomped - it was to do with the fancy comment posting done by this theme - 3K2. Once I disabled it, everything worked fine. As a final test:
