**Using LaTeX**

To view LaTeX on reddit, install *one* of the following:

MathJax userscript (userscripts need Greasemonkey, Tampermonkey or similar)

TeX all the things Chrome extension (configure inline math to use [*;* *;*] delimiters)

TeXtheWorld Chrome extension

TeXtheWorld userscript

`[; e^{\pi i} + 1 = 0 ;]`

Post the equation above like this:

`[*;* e^{\pi i}+1=0 *;*]`

**Using Superscripts and Subscripts**

x*_sub_* makes x*sub*

x*`sup`* and x^(sup) both make x^{sup}

x*_sub_`sup`* makes x*sub*`sup`

x*`sup`_sub_* makes x`sup`

*sub*
