unsupported math
environments in LyX without using ERT or macro tricks. I also agree that
this is a
problem that should be fixed (although I can't immediately think of an easy
way to
fix it)...I was simply trying to help Rudi find a workaround that would
make life a bit
more pleasant given the limitations in LyX as it exists today (which is
much better
than using plain LaTeX, in my opinion).
