I am using the
multline environment to typeset rather large formulas that take up 1/3 of the page. Since the
multline environment does not break across pages, layouting of the text before the environment is at times rather ugly (since the formula will only start at the top of the next page).
I was thinking about making the
multline environment float, e.g. by wrapping it within a
figure environment. Is this acceptable style? Should it be avoided?
