Hello world!
The date today is \today.
\section{Chapter 1}
Here is my first attempt at the \LaTeX\,(pronounced LAY-Tek) language. Typographic
tradition says ``Do not indent the first paragraph after a Heading''.
Here is a nice square root expression:
$$\sqrt{x^2+5x+1}$$
and here is an inline equation: $y=x^2-1$.
Note that the horizontal bar covers the entire square root expression above.
For italics, you say: ``\textbackslash textit'' (for text in italics) then enclose the required text in curly brackets.
As an example: \textit{This text is in italics} --- so simple!
$$blank line$$
And how do I get HELP in general? This looks like it's a whole new paragraph.
I'd like to keep typing so that I get a couple of lines to show that it's a REAL paragraph.
The next paragraph is correctly indented... but without a blank
line between paragraphs.
Quoted strings do \textit{need} special quoting. The ordinary quotes using the double quote
character on the keyboard like "this" just won't do. We need
to use opening quotes (``) and closing quotes ('') using two tilde ({`}) and two single-quote ({'})
characters instead.
Now, quotes look much better:
$$``Is this is a proper quoted line?''$$ but it's wrongly defined as a Mathematical expression,
hence the missing blank spaces and incorrect closing quotes.
You can't fool \LaTeX\,by saying that the
heading is a Mathematical line (using dollar or double-dollar).
\begin{center}``Is this centred? Yes, it is.''
\end{center}
What about this sentence? Back to normal fomatting. Excellent!
