Hello,

I want to display an equation--u=x/y--in a format where the x is
actually over the y.  I thought I could use tex or latex with a <tex>
</tex> kind of format based on what I read in the Problem Editing
Help link in the edit mode.  The problem is I don't know tex or latex
so I don't know if I'm screwing up the tags or the tex code itself (I
got some help from our tex-using profs).

1st question: Is it Tex or LaTex (or both) that LON-CAPA uses?
2nd: How do you enable it?

Here's what I'm trying:
<tex >$\frac{x y}$</tex >
<tex>$u = L \sqrt{g/h}$</tex>

Am I even close?
