 Colin Burnett 2005-04-29 02:19:16 UTC Currently, if I enter $x \sim N(\mu, \sigma^2)$ then it is forced to render as PNG because \sim won't convert to a tilde for HTML rendering. Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-05-20 20:54:28 UTC According to http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/sgml/entities.html There is a sim entity: but in firefox it looks really different. I used ˜ instead and commited that in trunk as r14314 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-05-20 20:59:51 UTC live site updated.
