Most of the LaTeX code you would insert in Org files will be exported
ok.  This LaTeX could be LaTeX fragments, or more complex commands.
Check `org-latex-entities' for a list of recognized commands.

If you want to insert several lines of LaTeX code, put them between
these markers:


If you want to insert a specific LaTeX header, just define the variable
`org-export-latex-header' locally in your Org file.  See the Org manual
at (info "(org)CSS support") for an example on setting a local variable
in Org, and replace `org-export-html-style' by `org-export-latex-header'
in this example.

If you want to use your own customized LaTeX class then define it in
`org-export-latex-classes' and add #+LaTeX_CLASS: myclass as a local
option in your Org file.

Combining all these should provide a nearly complete environment to
write in Org and have a good LaTeX output.  It won't catch all the
complexity and flexibility of LaTeX (or TeX) but I guess it will be
enough as a start !

Actually, we really *lack* a tutorial on the LaTeX export.
