# Typo in the FAQ list

The FAQ list reads, in part:

Some basics for people new to LaTeX. Inline formulas are surrounded by single dollar signs (f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c renders as $f(x)=ax^2+bx+c$), and block formulas by double dollar signs so that x = \frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a} renders as

That should be:

with dollar signs. (Part of the point of the sentence is to distinguish between $ and $\$, so they should be in the examples.)

• Hm, the change doesn't seem to have promulgated to the /faq page yet. Does that happen in a nightly script or something? I thought it was immediate. Apr 10 '13 at 17:14
