# Send an email containing math symbols and equations! (Beta)

Use this page to easily send math in an email.

## Instructions

The display on the right updates when you press the **<Enter> key** on your keyboard, and it shows the resulting math. You can change my sample mail to whatever you want.

When entering math, remember to surround it with the **backtick** symbol (`), NOT the apostrophe (’).

See how to type math (syntax for ASCIIMath. Opens in a new window.)

**Important:** You may get an error on the following "Preview" page:

"Latex failed, probably due to an error in your expression."

If so, try using more brackets around the key parts of your expressions. For example, try (x/y) rather than x/y.

**Note 1:** This math in email system is in **beta**. Please forgive any strangeness and let me know if you have trouble.

**Note 2:** This system supports ASCIIMath and simple LaTeX input.

**Note 3:** You can't use any HTML tags, like `<b>`

or `<a href=...>`

, sorry. They will be stripped out.

**Note 4:** This is not a closed or private system and your mail can possibly be read in transit.

## Further Information

See a more extensive list of ASCIIMath syntax for those special symbols you're looking for.

Enter math in emails, forums and Web pages using ASCIIMath.
