In answer to Murray's question, some LaTeX symbols are called "log-like":
http://omega.albany.edu:8008/Symbols.html
This affects how they are typeset.
Bill's answer gave me a good clue:
if I am entering math in StandardForm,
then such log-like symbols are recognized by Mathematica,
although it does not display them differently.
E.g., if I enter ln(x) in a math cell and then
change to StandardForm I get Log[x] displayed.
But now I am puzzled by the meaning of cell styles.
Suppose I enter the following in a cell given a "Text" style:
Test: ctrl-( ln(x) ctrl-)
and then copy it as LaTeX. What I expect to get is
Test: $\ln(x)$
What I get instead is:
\text{Test: }
\ln (x)
Why is Mathematica treating a "Text" cell as a math environment?
Thanks,
Alan Isaac
