comment Why is LaTeX used as the defacto standard for math equations?
I would dearly love to be able to generate html pages with MathML equations from the LaTeX source seamlessly you can try tex4ht.

tizkedt have not been updated since june 2013. That is verylong time in computer scale. I wonder if it is still alive.

comment how to get mathematical equations into image in latex?
There is a simple solution. Just use tex4ht. It compiles each equation to one .png file.

comment Using LaTeX to solve math problems in LaTeX more efficiently than with only paper
Use \begin{dmath} ... \end{dmath} from the breqn package This does not always work. There are problems not resolved with this package. Please see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/119334/… for some issues.

comment Help designing a TiKZ drawing
I have never been into the TiKZ class Is there even a TiKz class offered anywhere? I've never even seen a Latex class offered, at least in the US. So this makes it even less likely there is a Tikz class. But it is a good idea. We really need a Latex university, where one can get a PhD in Latex if needed.

comment Using LaTeX to solve math problems in LaTeX more efficiently than with only paper
@Tim Not that I know about. There are 2 basic designs out there: Computer algebra that supports (limited) latex export, such as Maple, Sage, Mathematica. Then there is a Latex typesetting system that supports a computer algebra system. In the second case, SW is the only one I know about which does good job at the typesetting and has full CAS build into it. I read that with Lyx one can configure it to use an external CAS, but will not be build-in and easy to use as with SW where mupad is integrated in it. btw, SW has student version if you are student. Well worth it.

comment how to make fbox produce similar result to boxed from amsmath when used inside display math?
Your solution worked very well also. SW is able to read the latex file ok and display frame on screen since the internal code was not changed and kept as is. Only preamble changed which is ok.

THanks again, but it does not work on the code generated. You removed the $$ from the code that was there. Here is MWE again. I get errors compiling this: \documentclass[11pt]{article}% \usepackage{amsmath} \setlength{\fboxsep}{10pt} \LetLtxMacro\LaTeXStandardFBox\fbox \renewcommand{\fbox}[1]{% \[% \LaTeXStandardFBox{% \ensuremath{\displaystyle{#1}}% }% End of \fbox \]% }% \begin{document} %can't modify code below \[ \fbox{$x_1\left( t\right) =x_{20}\frac{t}{1+t^2}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{\left( 1+t^2\right) }}$}% \] \end{document} if you need clarifications, I am in chat.

comment how to make fbox produce similar result to boxed from amsmath when used inside display math?
SW can be removed completely out of the picture. The problem is this: Is there a way to make fbox behave the same as boxed without modifying the code itself, but only using the preamble? That is all. I can add any code to the preamble, but can't edit the code itself or add extra code inside.

comment how to make fbox produce similar result to boxed from amsmath when used inside display math?
I can add \mathfbox to preamble. But this is not the issue. How would I tell SW to use it? I click on a button to add frame around equation. SW generates \fbox. Now what? I can't tell SW to generate code that uses \mathfbox instead. Is there a way to redefine fbox itself to make it do \ensuremath{\displaystyle ? So I do not have to edit the code. Your answer is useful and I can use it when writing direct Latex. But I am using SW at this moment.

comment how to make fbox produce similar result to boxed from amsmath when used inside display math?
Thanks again. But I do not think I explained my problem well. I can't add \mathfbox from the GUI. So I have no way to use it when using SW. The issue is that SW generates the fbox and I can only add code to preamble to fix things, but can't edit the code or add code inside the document, since SW will not understand it if it does not supports it in the GUI. The fix has to be to do it all in the preamble only. This way I can still use the GUI but get the correct output when I compile. I hope this explain the problem better.

comment how to make fbox produce similar result to boxed from amsmath when used inside display math?
Thanks. But is there a way to write some macro in preamble to do this? i.e. without having to edit the generated code itself? I can't edit the code generated each time and fix this by hand as I mentioned I use SW GUI to generate this code and it is not practical to edit this each time I make changes. Also SW does not understand this new code any more and so it does not display correctly on the screen any more. Here is screen shot from SW to explain the issue !Mathematica graphics

comment lstlistings: framed code
@davidg non-of the solutions below (with auto-adjustment of width) work for verbatim that extends over one page. The text is chopped off if it is longer than one page.

fyi, this solution does not work, as it chops off any verbatim if it is over one page long.

comment why first line is missing using fancybox BVerbatim?
Ok, will look at listing. But this all works fine with \begin{Verbatim}[frame=single]. I do not want to include text from files. The verbatim text is already inside the latex document. Only reason I was looking at fancybox here, is to make the box fit tight around the text, which \begin{Verbatim}[frame=single] does not do and has no option to do that. I assumed listing works only with reading text from files, but will check on it now. As long as I can get a frame that fits tight around the text, and does not get chopped at the end of the page, then I can use listing instead. Thanks.

comment why first line is missing using fancybox BVerbatim?
thanks. But verbatimbox has the same issue I wrote about in my comment to Herbert above. For verbatim that is too long, the box gets chopped off and I lose verbatim text if the is longer than one page. This problem do not happen with \begin{Verbatim}[frame=single]
