Dan Schmidt entered LaTeX above using the following delimiters - both the backslashes and the brackets seem to be necessary:

`\\(`

`\\)`

That works for me too, without a wait. E.g., `\\(E = mc^2\\)` yields \\(E = mc^2\\). Is anyone NOT seeing this rendered correctly?

(And by the way, is there a word for a language that has all the most useful fragments of LaTeX but isn't actually fully programmable TeX?)
