    Whenever I post with some LaTeX code, I seem to get random spaces throughout my tags, for example: ...\frac... becomes ...\fra c... which then does not render correctly. Am I doing something wrong and how can I overcome this? Thanks

    Not heard of this problem before. I presume you're not using the app.
    Could it be you're putting in a newline character, rather than just letting the text run over from one line to the next?

    Other than that, I can't think of anything.

    can you post an example? It might be a problem with TSR's editor rather than latex.

    I'm aware of issues in general posting where spaces get inserted when you have a very long string of characters with no spaces. I thought this was happening at "page layout" time (and so wouldn't affect LaTeX) but it does sound quite similar.

    Is the Latex you're using a long unbroken string?

    Also, it might be worth posting an example.

    Try also posting without LaTeX tags and with [code] tags (to see if you still get the spaces).

    Thanks everyone for the help, and I ended up fixing it by adding in spaces in my code
