Thanks for the suggestions.

I AM using amsmath. (Isn't \pmatrix from amsmath?) \larger generates
an "Undefined control sequence". Google had also led me to a post from
some years ago (I think from Claus!) suggesting \smaller[] for an
essentially similar problem -- but that also generates the same error.
I couldn't find any documentation on \smaller, either. (Nor can I for
\larger, for that matter!)
Maybe these are being supplied by some other package, Claus?

Great, that works fine. The examples I found googling didn't have the
internal $$. \mbox works, too. Any reason to prefer one over the
other in future applications?
Thanks,
