Description Colin Burnett 2005-04-29 02:19:16 UTC
Currently, if I enter <math>x \sim N(\mu, \sigma^2)</math> then it is forced to
render as PNG because \sim won't convert to a tilde for HTML rendering.
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-05-20 20:54:28 UTC
According to

There is a sim entity:

<!ENTITY sim  CDATA "&#8764;"
-- tilde operator = varies with = similar to,
                  U+223C ISOtech -->

but in firefox it looks really different. I used &tilde; instead
and commited that in trunk as r14314
