How to add Subscript in the Message Window

Hi

I am a newbie in the forum, and may not know certain editing tricks. For example, I am facing a number of problems, like;

-> Entering an equation with Subscripts - for example; x1, x2 ... etc. where 1 and 2 must appear as Subscripts.

-> Is there any way to enter fractions, like; (a + b + c) / d in proper factional format?

-> What does [Img] tag do?

Help will be appreciated.

Re: How to add Subscript in the Message Window

Hi Raabi;

Subscripts and other forms of math are enetered using latex. For instance:

I use the page here to do it for me:

http://latex.codecogs.com/editor.php

The img tag is used to display an image in your post.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

Re: How to add Subscript in the Message Window

Thanks for the response. Should I download the image from the laTeX and insert into the message box or Copy & Paste?
I tried both; but could not do it. Would you kindly explain a bit! I tried with the [Img] tag as well, but could not go ahead. Please help.

Regards

Re: How to add Subscript in the Message Window

Hi;

From code codecogs, copy the latex and put it between the math tags:

"[math] put the latex here[/math]"

leave out the quotes.

img is copying pictures

"[img]http://ut-images.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/cassinirings.jpg[/img]"

without the quotes yields

Do not use quick post you will see slots to upload pictures.
