I want to make a nice table of numbers, nicely aligned, with errors,
like this

a +/- b
c +/- d

etc. With LaTeX, I simply set up the tabular format as

a & b \\
c & d \\

And it looks great. But L2H fails, giving a table like this:

a $$ b
c $$ d

and it complains that the command pm is unknown. I've tried a protect
around the \pm to no avail. Any ideas??
