Hi Jane;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

[ hide]Unique New York[/hide]

Here's what your attempt should look like after you remove the blank space after the first bracket:

If you want to give the hide tab a title, you can do it like this:

[ hide=Tongue twister]Unique New York[/hide]

This is what it should look like:
