Hello all,

First thanks to all who contributed to my original
questions about \fbox and using it to typeset Maths.

I am just reading the Latex Primer and trying out how
to typeset Mathematics correctly.

Removing the curly braces...boxes only one character,
that is the first character encountered.


Trying to  box this:

\fbox{{a^{m} \times a^{n} = a^{m+n}}


This is the error message:

! Missing $ inserted.
<inserted text>
l.59 \fbox {a^{m}\times a^{n}=a^{m + n}}


With kind appreciation for all the help.
