    I'm confused...
    The compiled (?) formula shows up in your reply but not in my post. A clue, please?

    I have no clue. Have you tried re-typing it? Or try in another browser?

    Tex always has worked for me, so I tried in your thread to eliminate any site changes as the cause.

    Good. I suspect there was a non-printable character embedded in your original post, that was not copied during the copy and paste operation.

    Found it!
    I had cut and pasted an example into my original post which delimited the TEX argument with "plain" and "/plain", ostensibly to show the raw Tex format in the article I got the sample from without compiling the argument.
    Anyway, I just now edited out the "plain" and the "/plain", and everything works.
    Thanks for the help. :)

    Hello,

    The plain tag is for showing how the text is made by not parsing the text.
