Giovannie, thanks very much for the reply. Your solution works well
for latex export.

Is there a way to make it work for the HTML export too? I thought
MathJax would take care of converting it to appropriate html file.
While \pi_g is appropriately converted, \geq is not. Also, 
remain in the HTML. Perhaps, I am asking for too much and please let
me know if that is so. But if there is a way to write math in such a
way that it is compatible with both html and latex, I would like to
learn it.

Thanks again.
