Forum & Latex - missing features

Is there a way to write double-struck letters like |R, |N, etc...?

latex command is \mathbb{<letter>} but the math tag seems to refuse this syntax.

I am working on a fix for it.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Sorry mathsyperson, I think I mean to reply to you post, but instead hit edit....

Re: Forum & Latex - missing features

Is there some trick I'm missing to get LaTex to format in-line, preferably with a smaller font. I've tried every trick I know, without sucess.

Just for example, what I'm objecting to is something like this:

The sum over over all basis vectors

with components
is
, i = 1, 2, ...,n.

Check my raw text to see that what appears is not what I intended.

I could experiment with it.
