[unclug] LaTeX help?

I had the bright idea of turning in my Discrete Math homework as
neatly-printed LaTeX documents instead of pen-and-paper.

If you want to see my actual problem, look below. Suffice it to say that I
gave up after about an hour and a half of googling and www.tug.org
browsing, and was wondering if anybody either knew the answer or could
suggest another reference.

I got stuck trying to get $x\not{\in}B$ to render correctly. It should
look like an epsilon with a slash through it, but LaTeX doesn't seem to
realize how big the "Is an element of" character is, so the slash doesn't
go through the middle.



I'm actually using pdflatex. Don't think this makes a difference, but...
/me shrugs.
