# "+" symbol with Tex tags

#### Dason

The [noparse][TEX] [/TEX][/noparse] tags seem to cause some trouble around here. They don't render the "+" symbol if it's in an equation which causes frustration for some users. I know these get rendered externally but is there anyway to fix this? Or possibly change the tex button to add math tags instead?

There seems to be a problem with google rendering engine, so please use the math tag instead. The math tag is processed differently from the spoiler/youtube/tex tags and it cannot be shown as a button. Sorry.

We'll stick with the good old math tag.

$$a+b$$

Yeah I've mainly just been telling people to use the math tag instead but it seems that because there is a Tex button that most first time users that are familiar with LaTeX use that button and thus use the Tex tags and get frustrated that things aren't being rendered properly.
