# How do I insert latex tags in stackexchange?

It is not listed in the full reference. But I have seen people insert latex code. Which tag is for latex?

Just put latex code between $signs. Like this: $\alpha$ gives$\alpha$. • it doesnt work for me? It just stays as$...\$. Is there actual tag I could use to force it to compile latex? Sep 1 '10 at 7:07
