Hi Nathan,

<m>$ STUFF $</m> puts the equation in in-line mode.  This is easier to 
manipulate with html, like the center tag, but not as pretty because it 
tries to stay all on one line.  \frac{a}{b} looks like a/b for example. 

<m>\[ STUFF \]</m> puts the equation in equation mode.  It automatically 
centers in equation mode.  The only way I have found to force 
left-justification is to put the math display inside of a one cell 
table.  Maybe someone else has a better solution.  I find that I 
especially have to use <table><tr><td><m>\[ STUFF 
\]</m></td></tr></table> when using formulae inside of radio/option 
response foils.
