You can use inline mode ( this is single-$-signs, or \( ... \) )
combined with <br /> but this gets ugly with fractions in the tth
displaymode because tth's typesetting of inline fractions is ugly. You
can fix this by forcing displaymode of inline math by including a
<tthoption> -t </tthoption> tag.
Examples:
(1) <br /><m>\( u = \frac{x}{y} \)</m><br />
(2) <br /><tthoption> -t </tthoption><m>\( u = \frac{x}{y} \)</m><br />
(3) <br /><m display="jsmath">\( u = \frac{x}{y} \)</m><br />
Lars.
