You do know that the links to edit individual sections don't work, right? :) --Cynic 21:37, 27 April 2008 (UTC)


I do know, but not quite sure how to fix it. Haven't had the time to really sit down and figure it out yet. Any ideas?

Section editing fixed!

At least in my browser, the stuff in < nowiki> tags inside the transclusion of House Style gets $\LaTeX$'d

Also, what was wrong with "page inclusion" or whatever? transclusion's a hideous word. Damn Ted Nelson. --Linus44 08:47, 4 March 2011 (CST)

Interesting. Might have to look at that. Transclusion (yeah, wo'ever) seems to do funny things: stuff in < math > style delimiters doesn't get translated in mine, which is another reason to convert to dollar delims. --prime mover 12:11, 4 March 2011 (CST)
... aw no that is just too weird. --prime mover 12:17, 4 March 2011 (CST)
Well, that's weird. I've removed the dollar signs from the nowiki'd parts (except for the code style stuff about where to put punctuation, where I did a bit of a work around cause it needed the dollar signs). Not ideal but at least it doesn't completely defeat the point of giving the rendering codes. It seems like mathjax is just a bit overzealous on what it decides to interpret for this kind of thing... --Alec (talk) 14:05, 5 March 2011 (CST)


I would like to make a new suggestion for something that I only spotted just today. My suggestion (pertaining subscripts to big operators) is made most easily apparent by displaying the alternatives side by side:

$\displaystyle \sum_{k = 1}^n a_k \quad \text{vs.} \quad \sum_{k \mathop = 1}^n a_k$

As one sees, the second has the $=$ being treated by TeX as a proper mathematical operator (similar to how it behaves normally). I was brought to this by Definition:Limit Inferior of Sequence of Sets, where the $\bigcap$ has a really ugly subscript $i = n$. What do you think? It was not until I actually tried it out that I realised how much better it actually looks. --Lord_Farin 05:18, 13 April 2012 (EDT)

Sorry, I didn't notice it (been a bit preoccupied this last couple of days, been working on setting up a business opportunity). My view is, then: add the mathop as necessary, whenever it improves the look. --prime mover 15:31, 14 April 2012 (EDT)
