<BOX> Math Box

Definition: One of the BOX element's uses is as invisible brackets for disambiguating expressions. It is also used to place delimiters before and/or after an expression, which will then grow to match the expression's height (corresponding to LaTeX's left and right commands). In addition, you can use the BOX element to place numerators over denominators, with or without dividing lines, and for stretchy integral and related signs that can grow to match the integrand's height. Using BOX in this way surpasses LaTeX and eliminates the need to use different symbols for different sizes of integral signs and so on.

Attributes:
