# [texhax] Text in Math Mode

    I wrote the following line in LaTeX:
$$a = b~iff~a \geq b~and a \leq b$$
I would like LaTex to generate something like:
a = b iff a >= b and a <= b
The problem is, LaTeX is adding a small amount of white space in the word
iff. What can I do to turn this off? I tried putting curly braces around iff
but that does not seem to help.
