Sorry if I've double posted this - I keep sending from the wrong account...

Hi all,

I am using a lot of <equation> tags in my markdown cells, and that works great for what I am writing.  However, is there a way to get latex-style highlighting in my cells rather than markdown (or some combination of both)?  As soon as you put an underscore in the cell, everything until the next underscore is rendered as oblique, which is not very easy to read.  

i.e. if I type:

Hello $a_b$ there.   

Everything after the "b" is oblique.  

Thanks for any pointers.

Cheers,  Jody
