latex/mathjax formatting hint #Equations

Another typesetting right.

In mathjax/latex, instead of using \bigg for surrounding expressions, it is best to user \left and \right.

For example, use

\[\left[ \theta + \frac{ \pi}{2} \right] \]

instead of

\[\bigg[ \theta + \frac{ \pi}{2} \bigg]\]

This is because \bigg doesn't scale very well to different sizes.

Regards,

Delmar
