(the LaTeX math delimiters)
Additional parameters are , ,

WHERE TO USE
============
You can use this operator anywhere, but it is probably most useful in a
new content class. Just add a plain text field and use the operator
in a custom template for this class as described below. A package is
provided in the distribution (made in a 3.6.1 site).
However, you may as well add a custom tag for xml text fields. An example
template and settings are provided.
EXAMPLE TEMPLATE CODE
=====================
For versions lower than 3.6, you will need to use the old syntax ... but
it should work.
Have fun
