If people have to typeset math formulas I always recommend to read the
amsmath manual and forget everything they read in the LaTeX docs.

And I can't resist to say that the way the amsmath manual had been
written

Yes, eqnarray should be avoided.  I recommend to use the onlyamsmath
package whenever applicable.
