Frank,
I think you misunderstand my point. I'm not saying put TraditionalForm
in the TeX file. I'm saying use TraditionalForm in the notebook.
Or in other words, put into Mathematica what you want to see in the
final document (ps, pdf, or whatever you're creating from the TeX
file).
So "sin(x)" in a Mathematica notebook translates to "$\sin(x)$" in the
TeX file. This is rendered as "sin(x)" in the final document.
And "Sin[x]" -> "$\text{Sin}[x]$.
And "sin x" -> "$\sin x$".
This is sometimes referred to as WYSIWYG (what you see is what you
get). Though there are many ways in which Mathematica and TeX greatly
differ. So I wouldn't go that far. But the general idea holds. When
deciding what to put in the notebook, don't think about what TeX you
want to produce. Think about the final document you want to produce.
