### Hypertext Help with LaTeX

## \ensuremath (**LaTeX2e**)

`\ensuremath{Text set in math mode}`

The argument of the `\ensuremath` command is always set
in math mode, regardless of the current mode. Note that math mode
is **not** specifically invoked in the argument of
the `\ensuremath` command.

Thus `\ensuremath{$\alpha^2+\beta^2$}` is **not
correct**. The **correct** form is
`\ensuremath{\alpha^2+\beta^2}`.
