What is the preferred way to write the name "LaTeX" on this site? A few questions use $\LaTeX$ in order to get the LaTeX name; however that looks wrong to me because it makes the letters italics, which isn't the case with the "proper" typeset name. You can get that name with $\mathrm{\LaTeX}$ which looks quite perfect (at least where LaTeX is enabled) but is a lot to type. And of course there exists the standard textual form LaTeX matching the name of the macro, and quite usual where you are restricted to pure text.

Use whichever way you like best. Even when writing $\LaTeX$, post titles are searchable, so this has no disadvantage. I wouldn't bother too much trying to get it to look excellent: it doesn't look perfect when MathML rendering is used anyway (and I need to use MathML rendering, otherwise long posts are painfully slow to edit when they have formulae)
