LaTeX loses its Math Magic (tm) when using 
\documentclass{howto}: underscore operator in math 
enviroment doesn't produce subscripts.

This documents shows some oddities:

\documentclass{howto}

\begin{document}

Water is $H_2O$, and subscript is missing from...

\[ V_{0,r} \]

Superscripts are instead fine, as $e^{\pi i} + 1 = 0$ 
shows.

Also this is completely different from what obtained by
\textbackslash documentclass\{article\}.

\[ \sum_{k=0}^\infty \int_0^k f(x) dx \]
\end{document}

The bug is removed by commenting out lines 541--549 in 
python.sty, but i don't know how to *fix* them... (not a 
TeXpert)

Using Python 2.3.5, Windows 2000, LaTeX2e (e-TeX 
3.141592-2.2, MikTex 2.4 implementation)

Boy, has this lingered!

Everything seems to be fine with the current version using
your example docuement, so I'm closing this as out of date.

Please respond if you're still having trouble with the
latest version.
