tex in hints?

I tried to put a mathematical expression into an
answer hint but that did not work (the hint just
included the untexed expression.) Is there a way to get around this?

If you use
 BEGIN_HINT
 hint material
 END_HINT
then TeX will be processed in the same way that it is with BEGIN_TEXT/END_TEXT.

(This is somewhat recent, since about version 2.3 of PG.)

BEGIN_HINT is translated into the following, uglier, construction which
could also be used:

HINT(EV3(<<'END_HINT'));

hint stuff

END_HINT
