Hi Group;

First a thank you to all those who pointed out to me (and others
apparently) about the various ways to input the symbolic form of Floor.

On a larger note, it surprises me that no one has yet published a book on
how to use Mathematica to write a technical document.  The number of questions
that appear on this board concerning the details of "how to do it"
suggests the need for such documentation.  I'm speculating when I say that
many users give up in frustration and go back to (or learn) Latex.  At
least there are bookcases full of "learning Latex".  I myself have 5!

I don't mean this to sound like a rant, but using Mathematica to publish a
document is, for most of us, not worth the effort.
