Yes, another reason why i don't like .NET you can only use what they give you, it's not really that flexible at all.

Have you tried sinply using Tan() instead? (Presuming the Math library for .Net is similar to the Win32 one...)
Does Delphi for .Net itself use assembler? You might want to look at your Delphi version's tan function (there has to be one) and see if it's similar.

BTW, this is how tan() looks like in D7's Math.pas:

function Tan(const X: Extended): Extended;
asm
        FLD    X
        FPTAN
        FSTP   ST(0)      { FPTAN pushes 1.0 after result }
        FWAIT
end;

So the only differences are that here the angle value is passed as a const and that your function frees the last stack register before computing the tangent.

I think System.Math.Tan() should be the .Net equivalent.
