Is it possible to use \begin{align} in an inline math mode with \displaystyle?

Well, have you tried it? I suspect it will not work, though. \begin{aligned} has a better chance of working. –  Harald Hanche-Olsen Jan 8 '11 at 17:51
Why would you want to do this? –  Seamus Jan 8 '11 at 17:54
@Harald, \begin{align} does NOT work, but \begin{aligned} works. –  xport Jan 8 '11 at 17:54
@Seamus, I want to put it in a tabular cell. I notice that inline equations get vertically centered by default in m{} type column. –  xport Jan 8 '11 at 17:58
the align environment cannot be used in math mode –  Herbert Jan 8 '11 at 19:19

Text \displaystyle\parbox{2cm}{\begin{align} x &= 1 \\ y &= 0 \end{align}} \quad more text
