\mathcal{F}
$$\large \mathcal{F}$$
There's also \mathscr{F}
$$\large \mathscr{F}$$
In general you can use to "reverse engineer" LaTeX symbols. It works even if you're bad at drawing (up to a point ).

Thanks so much!
The $$\large \mathscr{F}$$ was the one I was looking for!!!
Thanks again,

A very good question!! Here are a few more types, but I'd be VERY (sorry for shouting lol) interested to know of any other styles supported on here, if anyone knows of any...???
\mathbb{A B C\, a b c} = $ \displaystyle \mathbb{A B C\, a b c}$
\mathbf{A B C\, a b c} = $ \displaystyle \mathbf{A B C\, a b c}$
\mathit{A B C\, a b c} = $ \displaystyle \mathit{A B C\, a b c}$
\mathrm{A B C\, a b c} = $ \displaystyle \mathrm{A B C\, a b c}$
\mathsf{A B C\, a b c} = $ \displaystyle \mathsf{A B C\, a b c}$
\mathfrak{A B C\, a b c} = $ \displaystyle \mathfrak{A B C\, a b c}$

I just now completed a post on the length of modules and composition series ... I wanted to use the latex code to produce a 'curly' or script l as in the following text:
I tried \mathcal{l} and \mathscr{l} but neither gave the character l in the above text ... ...
Can someone please help?

Try \ell
...this will give you:
$ \displaystyle \ell$
It is one of the symbols in our Quick $\LaTeX$ tool, in the "General" set.

Thanks for the help Mark ... I have now amended my post in Linear and Abstract Algebra accordingly ...
Just a question/problem ...
I tried to use your "General" set  but strangely, the editor would not work ... I clicked on the ell symbol (the "little hand" symbol was showing but nothing happened) ... so I entered the code manually ...
When I opened a new post and tried to use the "general" set, the editor kept placing the Latex code for my choices in the title box despite my ensuring that the active element was the general content box ...
Can you help?

What OS/browser combo are you using? Are you using the WYSIWYG or standard mode for the editor?

I tried with both Mozilla and IE and was using WYSIWYG editor
Will have to check which version of Windows if you think that may make a difference

Yes OS version and browser version would be helpful.
For what it's worth, I use Windows 7 and everything works correctly for me using Chrome 37.x, Firefox 32.x and IE 11.x in both editor modes.
