    On this forum? Or in general? In general, I'd just use Character Map... there's no easy way round it. On TSR, your best bet is to use LaTeX (as sonofdot said above).

    For example, [lаtex]\displaystyle \int \sqrt{4x + 3}\ \mbox{d}x[/lаtex] gives \displaystyle \int \sqrt{4x + 3}\ \mbox{d}x

    Why don't both latex expressions appear in mathematical form, both seemed to by typed the same?

    Nay, if that were true, neither would be the other latex tag... my tricks are far more cunning than that :p: I like this game.

    But then it would show up when you quoted it (e.g. I can see the noparse tag now as I type this) whereas mine doesn't show even then. I never knew about that tag, though, so thanks for that! Had I known about it my cunning trick wouldn't have been necessary.
