Thanks, Eric, that did the trick.

The hint regarding 


is also useful - I had forgotten about that possibility and your point
about being able to use Org syntax on the text is a good one.

I tried searching for some relevant documentation on "#+LaTeX:", but
failed to find anything other that the Easy Template (Google's
"verbatim" search seems to use a different definition of "verbatim" to
mine).  Maybe it should be mentioned in the manual somewhere in the
chapter "Embedded LaTeX".
