Braces inside LaTeX statements

You want something simple like defining a set.

$$ \tag{correct} \textbf{A} = \{a, b, c, \cdots d\} $$ ...but the '{' are getting dropped...

$$ \tag{dropped} \textbf{A} = {a, b, c, \cdots d} $$

    Even better would be to use \lbrace and rbrace, since they always work properly,

    $$ \tag{more correct} \textbf{A} = \lbrace a, b, c, \cdots d \rbrace , $$
